"Sadness gives depth. Happiness gives height. Sadness gives roots. Happiness gives branches. Happiness is like a tree going into the sky, and sadness is like the roots going down into the womb of the earth. Both are needed, and the higher a tree goes, the deeper it goes, simultaneously. The bigger the tree, the bigger will be its roots. In fact, it is always in proportion. That’s its balance."

"It’s kinda sad isn’t it?
That someone could hurt you so much that you have to write about it."

Pretty enough on the surface,
but dive down into your depths,
you’ll find beauty most
people never see. Lucky me.
I fell in, headfirst.
