Let’s pack all of our things and find somewhere we can see ourselves living a quiet life. A place where the sand meets the sea and the years would pass by so delicately. I think we both need that time away from all the things we use to hate. But maybe someday I’ll go back to the place where I use to live to see if it’s changed and to see if the people I loved got away from it all. I hope that they did. Because I’ve seen what this place can do. I’ve felt my back breaking from the weight of the world on my shoulders. I need the air from the coast in my veins again, to stop myself from caving in. I’m so sorry mother for what I have done to this body you gave me but just count the tattoos as scars because I’ve been told that scars are just marks of stories and the roads I’ve taken to get me here. Besides, I’m comfortable in them.

So may the privelige be mine to watch the world go to hell by your side. And as we all disappear, hand in hand, we’ll persevere.
