Watching Life Die…

Living. The pursuit of life. We’ve become too obsessed with the concept that we’ve failed to actually live. We’ve stood by admiring others putting envy to their freedom. Putting curiosity to their methods. We’ve wandered so deep in thought; farther than we’ve ever let our thoughts go before yet our body stayed stagnant. Laid dormant in the cage of routine. No wonder life isn’t always as beautiful as it seems. We’ve lost sight of the Continue Reading
