If I can offer you any piece of advice it would be this:
Live now. Life is too damn short to simply wish things were different.

In Order

in the order its all supposed to happen
we take stock of the life that’s been dealt
the past, the present and the future
the hearts we’ve broken
and the ones we’ve felt

in order to make our way
pave our path
and stake our claim
we make sense of the puzzle pieces that once fit
rework the outcome
regroup and reclaim

in the same
order, yet different
this time with more focus,
direction, intent
we rework and reorder our lives
aligning ourselves to the natural order of life
rather than defining it by

in order for such transformation
to take time
to take place
no single life alone
can find the finish line to this race
in fact many lives are necessary to join in
to set the pace
to remind us all
there is no finish line,
only the order
that our journey
must take

and its true that journey is ours
and ours alone
many lives can only support
and help guide the way
but trust when I say
the support of unconditional love
light the streets along the journey
in order to feel like its worth it
to keep fighting every second
of every day

and sometimes, in order to make sense of it all
simple minds create labels,
and trends
when in the end
any order is disorder that’s all
without the love and support of your friends

and perhaps it’s a simple mind
that let these simple words
fall all over these pages
unravel and unfurl
but I can assure you
there is nothing simple in the order
of the ways these friends
saved the life
of this
