soms struikel die son

26 April 2016

as die hemele kan donder,
dan kan ek ook
as die reën kan val,
dan kan ek ook
iewers gaan die son weer skyn
en na vandag
kyk
ek
nooit
weer
terug
nie

imagethere is something in me
maybe something to be written;
now it is folded, and folded, and folded,
like a note in school
(Sharon Olds)

 

the world spins
we stumble on
it is enough

I
would rather
wear
honest tears
than the
most
beautiful
and
elaborately faked
smile

the art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seemed filled
with the intent to be lost
that their loss is no disaster
(Elizabeth Bishop)

It’s unfortunate and I really
wish I wouldn’t have to say this,
but I really like human beings who have suffered.
They are kinder.
(Emma Thompson)

The heart is the toughest part of the body.
Tenderness is in the hands.

Fear not the strangeness you feel.
The future has already entered you,
It is pulling you through life by the heart

It is like learning to ride a unicorn. You never forget.

I’ve never been rich,
but always wealthy,
giving and receiving
with my heart.
(C’Mor)

The true beauty of advancing in years, is the truth of advancing in grace.

It ain’t what they call you, it is what you answer to.
(W.C. Fields)

freeing herself of the dust of the past
was exhausting,
who knew dust could be so heavy?
who knew the fresh air could be so exhilirating?

i wanted to teach
myself some life lessons
at the age of 60 and
one of them was that
you don’t give up

(Diana Nyad)

Gaan terug, gaan soek na die ou voetpaaie en onthou wie jy is. Woordloos.
