Something and nothing.

Something about it being harder not to than to.
Something about looking forward
and never looking back.
Something about that something someone said once.

Things will get better than this.
You are better than this.
Get better than this.

Something about we only have one life.
Something about strength comes from within.
Something about one love to conquer it all.
Something and something about you.

Something else about you.

Something about what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.
Something about good things come in the end.
Something about the most important thing is to be happy.
Something I forgot.
and something I forgot again.

Something that makes me who I am.
Someone I’ve loved all this time.
Something I never thought I never knew that I knew.
Something you taught me.
one day.

Something about nothing
I ever imagined
Something I will be brave enough to do
Something one day you’ll be proud of
Something and nothing
That’s you.

One year.

There are five
three six
three zero
of seconds
to fill in your life every year.
Eight seven
six thousand
hours to spend
on love or on hope or on fear.
Seventeen new ways to discover yourself.
One hundred new things that feel strange.
Ten friends
to help you remember yourself.
A billion of more of your tears.
There are four different countries
or more, if you can.
No limit to words on a page.
Three quarrels
four sorrys
too much doubting yourself
but infinite new ways to change.
One lesson.
Two heartbreaks.
One love always there.
Two houses, but only one home.
So many times that you could have said yes
the most important of all you said no.
A whole year of memories
just once round the sun
and countless ways to count time.
The only times I’ll remember forever
are the times that I made this year mine.
