You swallowed up such a big piece of my history,
And now I don’t know if I’m meant to be unhappy
For eternity.
Maybe in due time, the stars will align
And I’ll have my chance to shine.

But until then,
The dark places in the back of my mind
Will have to suffice.
There is no crime in being kind,
Even when you’re left high and dry.

So please just take this mess
And find a contingency of happiness,
A shred of success.
And the rest will be for the best.

There is no past without regret,
There is no future without disillusionment.
There is no present
Without the oppressed.

About humblefoot

Kyle Fisher (who often uses the alias Logan Rowley online and in his writing) has been enjoying writing since he was just 8 years old. His first formal publication was at the age of 13. He is now a spiritualist and openly queer author, perpetually searching for inspiration to create and learn more about the world around him. He is always drawn to the simplicity and uniqueness that life has to offer. He doesn’t identify with labels or socially constructed ideas about how the world should be. He believes that the world is your oyster, and that we all project our own destinies with the thoughts we choose to harbour about the universe. He is an idealistic, spiritualistic hippie who is just trying to find his place in this world, crafting each word to leave his mark, and promote love and equality among all people.
