Enter with caution

I need a life that isn’t just about needing to escape my life.

Robert Polito, excerpt from “Please Refrain from Talking During the Movie” (via larmoyante)

Kids just need to be kids, even in the worst situations…

When you are lost, don’t follow me because I am not to be found
When you are weak, don’t lean on me because I am not a beacon of hope
When you are down and out, alone and sad
When you are in fear and in tears
Don’t trust in me because I am not a creature of wisdom to guide you

If you find yourself, let me know and I will smile with you
If you find strength, let me know and I will fly with you
If you make it out, with friends and happiness
If you become brave and overcome your fall
Let me know and I will share in the joys that I know you deserve

You don’t know me, only I know me
You don’t remember me, only I remember
You don’t pity me, or fight for me
You don’t halve my problems, or comfort me
Only I have experienced my life and the triumphs and losses it has given me

But I am your friend, I am not selfish
Your tears make me sad, I am not oblivious
Your moments of despair or your greatest celebrations
Your times of sorrow or your most cherished memories
I am not numb and, although I may not help, I do love.
