Beauty in the Forgotten
Sometimes, by a stroke of luck, you come across places so quiet, so seemingly forgotten, that you sigh in pity for the souls on this boisterous and overly-vibrant island who might never come to realise and appreciate such beauty.
But at the same time, you know that it is the very layer of silence and sense of abandonment which gives these places their essence of quaintness and charm. Too many footprints, and the grass will not grow anymore, the birds will leave their nests, and even the sunlight which bounces off our skin might have a different weight.
We are fickle after all.
The Resilient Escapist
I guess one of the most depressing things about escapism
Is that inescapable fact
That one will still need to return to reality;
Sometime, someday, somehow.
Are we ever able to escape, completely?
Yet, this knowledge about inescapability –
Doesn’t stop us from constantly trying.
That’s why we read.
That’s why we take pictures.
That’s why we try to lose ourselves in moments of pure, soulful music.
We are more resilient than we think, after all.
