He could've tuned in, tuned in
But he tuned out
A bad time, nothing could save him
Alone in a corridor, waiting, locked out
He got up outta there, ran for hundreds of miles
He made it to the ocean, had a smoke in a tree
The wind rose up, set him down on his knee

A wave came crashing like a fist to the jaw
Delivered him wings, "Hey, look at me now"
Arms wide open with the sea as his floor
Oh, power, oh

He's.. flying
Whole
High.. wide, oh

He floated back down 'cause he wanted to share
His key to the locks on the chains he saw everywhere
But first he was stripped and then he was stabbed
By faceless men,
Well, Fuckers....
He still stands.

And he still gives his love, he just gives it away
The love he receives is the love that is saved
And sometimes is seen a strange spot in the sky
A human being that was given to fly

High.. flying
Oh, oh
High.. flying

"Given to Fly" - Pearl Jam

Do you see the way that tree bends?
does it inspire?
leaning out to catch the sun's rays
a lesson to be applied
are you getting something out of this all encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone, redigesting past regrets, oh
or you can come to terms and realize
you're the only one who can't forgive yourself, oh
makes much more sense to live in the present tense.

Have you ideas on how this life ends?
checked your hands and studied the lines
have you the belief that the road ahead ascends off into the light?

Seems that needlessly it's getting harder
to find an approach and a way to live
are we getting something out of this all-encompassing trip?

You can spend your time alone redigesting past regrets, oh
or you can come to terms and realize
you're the only one who cannot forgive yourself, oh
makes much more sense to live in the present tense.

"Years are funny things.
Months are mysteries that make us question ourselves and who we really are.
Days can make us wonder who we need in our lives and who we don't. 
Hours can make us fall in love all over again. Or remind us of why we walked away. 
Time can make us stronger or make us weak. 

Years remind us of what we want in life.
Months can lead to an open heart.
Days keep us closed off and hidden away. 
Hours lead us in directions that can change our lives forever.
Time can heal us or wound us.

Years bring perspective and gratefulness.
Months can blind us to our surroundings.
Days can disgust us and push us away.
Hours can be used wisely, and make us think.
Time just keeps on ticking.

Years can break down our walls.
Months can lead to forgiveness.
Days can bring us back together.
Hours can fulfill our desires.

And it takes seconds to make us understand what we really want, what we really need, who we thought people were, and who was right in front of us all along.

Time makes all the difference. 
Years, months, days, hours, and seconds... we are constantly growing and learning. 
Life is a mystery, but that doesn't mean we have to understand the puzzle or its pieces."

-JNS0316



I have needed to write. Write anything. Just put my fingers to a keyboard and let go. If I could carry a tune I would sing this song. If I would finally pick up my guitar, and take it seriously, I would play a melody to match my words and my emotions.

I am always amazed at how time works in our souls. It opens our eyes. We long for things no longer worth longing for, and in an instant, a second, the longing is gone. At the same time we can find ourselves enveloped in love, and eyes wide, be in disbelief that we had been so blind.

There are so many things in life to be happy and sad about, to worry and wish for, to experience and be grateful for.
As time passes my heart and soul become more and more open to who I am and to what I want. I wonder, sometimes, why it took so long. I guess some of us just take longer to sort through experiences in our lives, and to really understand the people who have entered and exited in our years, months, days, and hours.

I have always been the one who wanted to rescue everyone around me. Whether you needed it or wanted it, I needed to make you smile to feel complete. All along it was me begging to be rescued. 

You put up with, and pretend, and cover your eyes and ears to what you wish were something that you needed. The truth is what you need is already inside you and all around you. When the hours, days, and months lead to years... you finally realize that you can't save the world from itself, but you can save yourself from the world.

The humble people, the ones that sit back and watch you make mistakes, that wait in the shadows without the need to be heard.. it's those that wait patiently for you to forgive yourself... they deserve your love and honor.
It's you that needs to love, honor, and respect yourself before you can understand their willingness to be forgiven. And once you take off your blindfold, open your eyes, and return their humility.. only then can you be happy. And only then can you feel love in ways that you never have before.

Years can make you grateful. And years can make you humble. 

It's the passing years that lead to smiles, laughs, and bonds like no other. We live and learn in those years; we open our hearts to old beginnings.

Your comments are so inspiring. I always try to show emotion in my photos, that's also one of the reasons I like to include lyrics with my submissions. I make no apologies for being all in.. 120%. We might be honest and put ourselves out there, but honesty is always better than pretending to be something you aren't. Looks like I've found a kindred spirit! Thanks again for your insight!
