a typical wildfire

‘let the lover be disgraceful, crazy, absentminded. someone sober will worry about the things going badly. let the lover be.’ - Rumi

i’ve always been taught about cancerous substances, ‘stay out of the sun!’ ‘don’t eat bacon!’ ‘HDL!’ ‘LDL!’ Writing Physiology essays on every element that causes inflammation and hacks our immunity. But one thing, I’ve come to realise is, the cancerous and contagious act of apathy.

Apathy towards yourself, towards whatever you love, and towards the people around you. And you know what’s the saddest part? There’s humanity floating around us, infected, allowing this lethargic, tar-like energy to cloud over yet another soul.

There us no chemo. You probably won’t be diagnosed. But when you realise you’re caught and you want out? …. It just takes resilience, letting go, reflecting. Taking a deep breath. Exhaling wildfires.

Nothing and NO ONE is worth

  • your dignity

  • your self respect

  • your inner love

  • your character

  • your beauty

  • your intelligence

  • your earth

You did not come this far, to only come this far.

Stay away from the apathetic kind, have the bacon instead!

You’ve flown before. Stop taking that ‘learning to fly’ bullshit. Take off.
