Heartbreak and Hope

 

Heartbreak and hope are not mutually exclusive.
We can be angry and sad and filled with longing for something we cannot have,
and simultaneously we can be grateful for what we’ve got — aware,
for reasons we’d never choose, of what really matters and what doesn’t.

to expect the dawn


We learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake,
not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn.

Awakening 

God sleeps in stones, breathes in plants, dreams in animals, and awakens in human beings.
