It was only a smile, nothing more. It didn't make everything all right. It didn't make ANYTHING all right. Only a smile. A tiny thing. A leaf in the woods, shaking in the wake of a startled bird's flight. But I'll take it. With open arms. Because when spring comes, it melts the snow one flake at a time, and maybe I just witnessed the first flake melting.@The Kite Runner

I vow to never cower in the face of fear. But instead hold my head high, stand my ground, and stare it down. Because cowering is a waste of my time and I do not give that away freely. I vow to better myself for the benefit of others and others only. I vow to stand up for those who can not stand for themselves. I vow to seek the truth, read between the lines and share the people's story. I vow to fight for a better future and allow for no less. I vow to not let my own problems consume me. I vow to take every opportunity and never turn someone away. I vow to live and breath every second of my life for the hope of a better world.
You know what I HATE? What takes my breath away periodically? What grinds my heart to a lifeless pulp? It's probably not what you would expect. No, it's not greed, or even my loved ones pain. No, this - this is something I should not think about so often. What breaks my heart is my inability to remember. To remember all those miniscule yet timeless moments I've spent with my heart filled with joy. To remember the moments in those picture my parents hung up in the hallway. To remember how I became the person I am today. Sure, I remember some things, but - but that's not enough for me. I want to remember everything. Because if I don't remember, did it ever really happen? We spend so much time focused on the future, on tomorrow, to only forget the past. But if we don't remember the past, then what is the point? Because sooner or later everything will become the past, and if no on is there to remember it, it never really happened. Not in the way that matters.©liliheart36
Oh hey, people. How have you all been?#pod
I am no Caesar, noram I Alexander, or Genghis, orany of the kings fromthe tomes and tales. I will never conquer and Iwill never capture - I do sharea common ground, however.I will walk theEarth for aninfinitesimally,abysmally,infuriatingly littletime - a mere blipsoon to be forgottenamong the dunes. Just likethe giants of yore.I run my fingers through the wind, did it starta hurricane somewhere?Is that going to be myonly contribution on thispale blue dot - destruction?This mere, rather primitive act of typing away has cosmic consequences; I amjust too mortal toobserve.Or, I could be grosslyoverestimating myself.I struggle to cope withmy own insignificance, as havebillions over eonsbefore me; how unoriginal.And I strive to do something new.Oh, the irony.I am a satire of a human lifea mockery, a parody,living and dying by the inkyet to dry.©thehemantkashyap
