... and if you can’t see anything beautiful about yourself
get a better mirror
look a little closer
stare a little longer
because there’s something inside you
that made you keep trying
despite everyone who told you to quit
you built a cast around your broken heart
and signed it yourself
you signed it
they were wrong

Fågeln väljer flykten. Vi valde den icke.
Flykten valde oss. Därför är vi här.
Ni som ej blev valda - men ändå frihet äger,
hjälp oss att bära den tunga flykt vi bär!

 

Bojan väljer foten. Vi valde att vandra.
Natten var barmhärtig. Nu är vi här.
Ni är för många, kanske den frie trygge säger.
Kan vi bli för många som vet vad frihet är?

 

Ingen väljer nöden. Vi valde den icke.
Den valde oss på vägen. Nu är vi här.
Ni som ej blev valda! Vi vet vad frihet väger!
Hjälp oss bära den frihet som vi bär!

 

- Stig Dagerman, 1954

"All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king."

– J. R. R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring.

Everyone who terrifies you is sixty-five percent water.
And everyone you love is made of stardust, and I know sometimes
you cannot even breathe deeply, and
the night sky is no home, and
you have cried yourself to sleep enough times
that you are down to your last two percent, but

nothing is infinite,
not even loss.

You are made of the sea and the stars, and one day
you are going to find yourself again. 

 

— F. Butler

For those who have come to the conclusion

That this whole world is an illusion

That will one day fade

And all that will be left is His face.

To those who seek God’s grace

In the city.

To you

I dedicate this.

Love letter from God

On your bookshelf,
There is a love letter from God.
Pages bound between leather.
Heavenly Words
Preserved the heart of His beloved.
Who kept it safe for us.
Open it up.
God wants to tell you
How much He loves you.

Yet each man kills the thing he loves
By each let this be heard.
Some do it with a bitter look,
Some with a flattering word.
The coward does it with a kiss,
The brave man with a sword!

- Oscar Wilde

The erythrocyte has one delight,
To circulate both day and night.
I stopped one as he passed my way
And asked him what he had to say.
”our life”, he said, ”is one of crisis,
lived in the shadow of instant lysis.
The thing a red cell fear the most
is becoming a pale transparent ghost.
But that may help explain”, he said,
”Our motto, better red than dead.”


– Harold T Meryman
