I saw a semicolon tattoo on his wrist.
Curious to know what that meant for him…
His easiest way of explaining was pulling the writing cords in me
“Just the same way you choose to use semicolons in your writing
Is the very way I chose to use it in my life
A semi colon in a sentence means
You could have ended that sentence but you chose not to
A semicolon in my life means
I could have ended my life but I chose not to
It’s here on my wrist just like a watch to remind me every time that I’m alive coz I chose to live and living is what I gotta do.

  1. this one alone was worth creating the site for.
    I believe in you
    asante sana
    never change who you are. you are the breath to the spark that ignites a fire. the same breath that cools the unbearable heat.
    never let the flame get too hot you can never blow it out.
    the seneca tribe have a word i can say but not spell, that means “give it breath” which in a way i see as the “Amen” that gives a prayer its wings.
    the words you give, are that breath, that part of you, you give to the world, a sacrifice of the soul.
    I want to say again Asante Sana for all you give
