“The sum of the past is
The sum of the future is
I will be.
The continuous crossing back and forth
Between the two
Obscures the present moment.
The I am,
Being itself.”—The lost writings of Hu Wsin

“I go through phases. Somedays I feel like the person I’m supposed to be, and then somedays, I turn into no one at all. There is both me and my silhouette. I hope that on the days you find me and all I am are darkened lines, you still are willing to be near me.”—Mary Kate Teske (via fawun)
