There will be no resistance to coloring my world with love. All that is true and deliberate will be counted.
Oh, yes. Your attitude will determine your lift and altitude. There are countless things required to make an airplane fly – and do it safely, but the most important thing is the “wind beneath your wings.” Without it, there is no lift, no climb, and no flight into the wild blue yonder or to one of those far-away, beautiful destinations.
You are the wind beneath my wings.
“Did you ever know that you're my hero, and everything I would like to be?
I can fly higher than an eagle, for you are the wind beneath my wings”
Always bring your own brand of sunshine with you. Wherever you go, whatever you do. Don't leave home without it.
~Robert Green Ingersoll
You send color to my gray.
When I’m in tears.
You blow my heartbreak away.
You make me happy when times are down.
You turn my world upside and around.
You catch my tears in your hand.
When I’m in terror you understand.
When I’m falling to the ground.
You catch me and twirl my heart around.
When I’m surrounded by darkness within the night.
You come around and cast your light.
If you weren't here I don’t know what I'd do.
Sunshine, I really love you."
i cried the way women on tv do
folding at the middle
like a five pound note.
i called the boy who use to love me
tried to ‘okay’ my voice
i said hello
he said warsan, what’s wrong, what’s happened?
and these are what my prayers look like;
i come from two countries
one is thirsty
the other is on fire
both need water.
i held an atlas in my lap
ran my fingers across the whole world
"where does it hurt?"
