On the Wind

DoubleU = W

grass pulled blade by blade

gathered into small bundle

and given over to the good

cheer of the passing breeze

thrown, carried on the wind

scattered without regard

such is also this instant,

this day, this thought, this

life – all coming only to

be placed on the shoulders

of a passing wind and

taken from us forever

Just like any other institution, it runs on certain principles and rules that all its members are required to learn, follow, and abide by. Every human institution needs some mechanism to maintain discipline and control over its members in order to keep it running, family not being an exception.

Life is all about choosing your own destiny and making it what you want it to be. Embrace yourself, love yourself, accept yourself. Do these things and you’ll be just fine. I promise.

*The cover photo of this blog was taken by my extremely talented cousin, Kate Posluszny. She is an amazing photographer and her work is utterly breathtaking. This photo truly captures the beauty and explanation of being bent but not broken, thank you!
