‘I’d rather hurt than live without’

Mom said something rather profound to me today, that “Just because it isn’t in your ‘right now’ doesn’t mean it won’t be in your future.”

I don’t know how she got so wise. But some days I appreciate it more than others.

In any event.

“I can face it, just about
I’d rather hurt than live without
But I will rage and scream and shout
A love, a life, it’s dark and bright
It’s beautiful and it’s all right.

Let your guard down
Get your heart pounded
We all bleed
We all breathe
And nothing stays the same.”

— Luke Sital-Singh, “Nothing Stays the Same”
