People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
A true soul mate is probably the most important person you’ll ever meet, because they tear down your walls and smack you awake. But to live with a soul mate forever? Nah. Too painful. Soul mates, they come into your life just to reveal another layer of yourself to you, and then leave.
A soul mate’s purpose is to shake you up, tear apart your ego a little bit, show you your obstacles and addictions, break your heart open so new light can get in, make you so desperate and out of control that you have to transform your life, then introduce you to your spiritual master…

Most people will only remember the promise of death when it allows itself to be seen. Some of us see through the veil, having no fear of it because we accept it as fact, we move past it onto a larger picture of what we should actually fear. Living. Caged in a body that fails us, or a body with a mind that has wandered away. Death becomes a promise you wish be kept. Death shows mercy, death shows pity. Death is the destination of your limitless or limited journey.

4) Just because he says you’re perfect, doesn’t mean he likes you.
You need to understand that truth;
“There’s still ample time to get serious,
We’re the youth
And I’m not wasting a day tied down to girls who eventually want rings”;
And he’s not ready for “this commitment thing”.
Life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness
Air brushed, with weave, fleeing from nappiness
LIttle brown skinned girls
With dark brown curls
Feeling not right
Cause they’re not white
Eyes like almonds, wide and brown
Full lips, full nose, on our side of town
Our side of town, not just…
