You don’t know who they will be, the ones who open your eyes to life’s wild magic, but when you find them, it will not be hard to tell.
Trying to pass themselves off as monsters, but the smile in their eyes keeps giving it away.
We are not so far away from the world of giants and secrets and magic.
This isn’t a popular opinion, but secretly I think things are going to work out.
For everything you’ve done and everything you are, thank you. You are the light that shines.
There is a way up toward the better world we have seen in our dreams, but these stairs won’t build themselves.
Real Hero (fem)
Anyone can slay a dragon, she told me, but try waking up every morning & loving the world all over again. That’s what takes a real hero.
Life might be
but I never knew
until I met you.
I don’t know
how to find the world
that lives in my dreams,
but in all of them
you are there,
so I think that
is the place to start.
If you find yourself wondering when it will be your time,
congratulations, your time has come.
Pick a date and do the thing. There is no rule that says you have to feel ready before you say yes to your dreams.
Nothing More (remix)
If there is any secret to this life I live, this is it: the sound of what cannot be seen sings within everything that can. & there is nothing more to it than that.
This is a wheelbarrow I filled with all my dreams & my favorite clothes & now all I need is someone to help me push it.
Waiting for Signs
I used to wait for a sign, she said, before I did anything. Then one night I had a dream & an angel in black tights came to me & said, you can start any time now, & then I asked is this a sign? & the angel started laughing & I woke up. Now, I think the whole world is filled with signs, but if there’s no laughter, I know they’re not for me.
I see stuff like this a lot in my dreams, so I decided it should at least be doing something useful while I figure out what it means.
Time in a Box
This is a box filled with all the time in the world & most people are amazed it fits in such a small space.
I still remember the day the world took you back & there was never time to thank you for the thousand scattered moments you left behind to watch us while we slept.
The Wind What Blows
This is the wind what blows, he said, & it lives in a jar in my bed & his eyes were big with the knowing of all that.
Teeth in a Box
These are teeth in a box & it swallows up all the mean things in the world & holds them in its jaws until times start to change.
Such Small Things
For a long time there were only your footprints & laughter in our dreams & even from such small things, we knew we could not wait to love you forever.
