He did it. He actually managed to describe how it feels to live with depression and suicidal tendencies.

"Do not let your fire go out, spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite, the not-yet, and the not-at-all. Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved and have never been able to reach. The world you desire can be won. It exists.. it is real.. it is possible.. it’s yours."

— Ayn Rand

Anonymous said: Why do you write?


To feel. To remind myself I am human. To love better. To practice patience, to be wiser, to learn to appreciate the growing pains. To salute every ordinary hero. To live instead of wanting to die. To become the person I always wanted to be, to leave my old self behind. To feel the universe beneath my hands. To marvel at the wonder of it all. To breathe easily. To let go. To let other people in. To open my own eyes. To heal.

To heal.


The other day I emptied my pockets and gave what was in them

to a homeless man: some bobby pins, a little bit of loose change,

a few ticket stubs, and a handful of notes written to various strangers.

One of them I found taped to the hood of a car;

it said If you’re reading this, I’m probably…



outstretched hands, brimming with hope, reaching straight up like sign posts in the air. the city is all movement and laughter tonight, but my thoughts are resting where the palm trees grow, where the soft slivers of evening light are only occasionally spliced by the smoke tendrils wafting from mamak stalls, roti canai stalls, char mee stalls.

give me a quiet night in my room, and my heart stirs, skips a beat, like this.

"I hope she kisses you with
the entire universe in her mouth
so that you wake up with
stars on your lips
and a smile that
drips constellations."

— Y.Z. (via larmoyante)

"I don’t want to earn my living; I want to live."

— Oscar Wilde (via larmoyante)

"Even when our eyes are closed, there’s a whole world out there that lives outside ourselves and our dreams."
