Let That Onward March Be A Bright Bright Fight

Pick up that pen

Let it write, let it soothe

Pray it lends you wings to take the coming flight,

Let the onward march be a bright bright fight

Pick that head up

Chin out, back straight

Pray it lends you courage to face that sight,

Let the onward march be a bright bright fight

Pick your trampled heart up

Place it where it rightfully belongs

Pray it lends you love to smite those in spite,

Let that onward march be a bright bright fight

Pick on all that demeans

Like burning fire for a blazing drive

Pray it lends you strength to see what’s right,

Let that onward march be a bright bright fight

And when what made it sparkle

Now fizzles into what’s left of strife

Pray it lends you another heart to make it right,

Let that onward march be a bright bright fight.

– a.h.

When you feel disheartened, do something about it. Don’t wallow in self-pity and expect somebody else to miraculously read your mind and help you out. Put on your shoes, go for a run, read a book, drink a cup of coffee, stare out of the cafe window and people-watch. Do something because if you don’t do it, who will?  

” “When you fall in love, it is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake, and then it subsides. And when it subsides, you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots are to become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the desire to mate every second of the day. It is not lying awake at night imagining that he is kissing every part of your body. No … don’t blush. I am telling you some truths. For that is just being in love; which any of us can convince ourselves we are. Love itself is what is left over, when being in love has burned away. Doesn’t sound very exciting, does it? But it is! ” – Captain Corelli’s Mandolin, Louis de Bernières
