You are incredibly brave,
you who place your safety on the line for love.
You who decide to give up your future
for that which you aren’t sure that you can hold.
There is nothing higher than to live your life
based on love.
It might mean giving up everything that you’ve ever had.
It might mean gaining everything you’ve ever wanted.
There’s an easy way to tell:
look at a person who has lived their life
based on security, money, and success.
Then look at a person who has lived their life
based on love and an incurable desire
to be free.
Then look at who is happy in themselves.
Wherever they go,
whatever happens to them,
who holds a light that shines through the darkness?
Love, love is the only way to live.
It is the only way to die.
It is the only way to do anything worth something
in a world that is dying to live.
