"she will try to run to the ends of the world;
let her go.
it will take her years of feeling
the earth beneath her feet,
dark water lashing her face,
blood under her fingernails,
to realise that nothing is chasing her
and that you have not followed.
she will return and kiss you,
triumphant, exultant, restless
and her lips will feel like
a thousand little knives
pressing into your skin:
the knowledge that she will not stay
she cannot stay
not even for you."

"Get excited about the little things. About wearing a new outfit for the first time. About Sunday brunches with your best friends. About the new cute guy in your class. About finding an extra dollar in your pocket. About anything that even remotely makes you happy because as you grow up, passions fade and enthusiasm gets mistaken for foolishness. So don’t let the grey world stop you from shining."
