Letting go is never easy
sometimes our mind is willing but our heart says no...
Sometimes there are things you regret, things you would like to take back,
things you would like to change if you could.
but we all have to live with the residue of our choices, and the consequence of our actions.
Others may be concerned for you, but let them know that you are the luckiest person alive to be able to move forward.
Some people never get to touch their dreams,
never get to know what that feels like.
Never find that thing they love, or get to do it for a living.
So is that a tragedy to have that taken away from you?
No, the tragedy would be to lay awake at night wondering 'what if?'
For those who have believed in you once, will believe in you again.
So for now, say goodbye to this chapter of you life, and look forward to what comes next.

I mentioned to a friend that I was lonely. They then said that no one should be lonely Russell, especially not you. That is where I said "I know, but we don't always choose what happens in our life. We just have to take what is served up to us, some of it will be good but other times it will be shit. "
Life can be shit sometimes, but its also what you make out of life that counts. I am probably the biggest culprit for bottling up issues and emotions, I would have a dark cellar over filled with aging bottles of my life by now.
I have never really had people that I feel that I could burden my life upon, not for will of trying, but more because I don't feel I should lay them down to people. I am the person my friends come to when they have troublesome issues and I feel it in me to take their burdens away from them.
There are some of us who love to help others and give those who are in need of emotional relief. We just need to be sure they are taken care of, before we start having our bottles attended to. And if they are anything like me, it will take a little while, a lot of trust and one kick arse bottle opener.
If you have a friend who is always out there helping others with issues, take some time on them to make sure they are actually ok.
Sometime we want to talk to :)

Whispers your name
It echoes through out the land
If only the silent rose could speak
Would it tell me of a love wanting to be deep
Oh how my heart would truly be
When this rose blossoms with light
It radiates you in the dismal night

love only happens when two hearts beat in time
be happy will not you, for your friends rejoice.
when it is indefinite, it burns like a permeating torch to my soul
its not fair that I am ready to release
when all i want from you is peace

We all fail, some of us have the fortitude to pick ourselves up and some of us will never have that. Some of us have grace in our hearts and the ability to show compassion, and some of us don't.
Forgiveness does not exist, it is simply what you do, and how you pay for it.
So remember that when you practice what ever evils in you heart, or when you cheat or steal, lust or hate or gossip or covet. What ever it is that you do, or planing to do or have done...
There is no forgiveness there is just what comes next.
There is only pain, guilt and the misery of knowing who you are and what you did.
So don't do it, Just stop before its too late.
Lost in an unknown world,
where others don't understand.
Free to be you and no one cares
autonomous as a bird flying by
Float away born free and new,
great energy radiates a bright glow.
Cautious with the delicateness of life
all troubles drift away,
like a troublesome dream away with dawn.
Born free and new life
lights up like a radiant glow.
Sun down on all old whither away
like an elderly leaf on the verge of autumns peril
Absorb like no tomorrow
as there are still new things to come.
Tomorrow is a day to start afresh
everything will fall into place.

that when you woke up you didn't know what to believe?
Would you retreat into your dreams with the hope of finding a more perfect reality?
and the only way to wake up, is to face what lies you've hidden in your soul.
And you can only hope that in those dark moments of reflection...
that you are not alone.
