A Lesson Before Dying

“I don’t know when I’m going to die, Jefferson. Maybe tomorrow, maybe next week, maybe today. That’s why I try to live as well as I can every day and not hurt people. Especially people who love me, people who have done so much for me, people who have sacrificed for me. I don’t want to hurt those people. I want to help those people as much as I can.”

—   A lesson before Dying, Earnest Gaines

-modest mouse
roll down the windows and open your mouths
taste where we are and play the music loud
stop the car, lay on the grass
the planets spin and we watch space pass
walk a direction, see where we get
i never knew nothin’ so theres nothin’ to forget
get real drunk and ride our bikes
there’s so much beauty it could make you cry
there’s so much beauty it could make you cry
there’s so much beauty it could make you cry

-modest mouse
Even if we don’t have the power to choose where we come from, we can still choose where we go from there. We can still do things. And we can try to feel okay about them.

-Stephen Chbosky







…He then would gaze
On the more distant scene;
He would gaze till it became
Far lovelier, and his heart could not sustain
the beauty still more beauteous.

- Wordsworth
