{sometimes you gotta fall before you fly}


i'm tired and i'm lost,
i don't wanna be found.
i put my heart and my soul
and strength in this now.

so forgive me 'cause i won't forget that
this world has changed me.
so you know when you ask me—

"who are you now?"
did you say what you want?
don't go back to the start.
i'm asking, who are you now?
did they break you apart?
won't you fight back for what you want?

sometimes you gotta fall before you fly—
we're gonna work this out.

~

the feeling of emptiness i have when i know i'm not blogging is one of the worst feelings i've ever had. i don't know if this is me coming back or if it's just me keeping myself sane.

whatever it is, i miss this.

i miss you.

  1. CAN I JUST SAY.
    THAT YOUR NEW HEADER IS STUNNING.
    STUN.
    NING.
    I miss this too. But you'll be back before you know it - don't worry. Until then, have virtual cookies and hugs to help keep you sane. They're not much, but they're sent with love. *cookies and hugs*

  2. I like it when you keep yourself sane.
    I like it when you do a singular picture post with lyrics, to give my heart a poke and make me feel things.
    MADDIE DO YOU UNDERSTAND HOW GREAT YOU ARE. DO YOU KNOW THAT YOUR POSTS MEAN MORE TO ME THAN ANY OTHER POSTS ON HERE.
    I mean we're not best bloggy friends, but I admire the hell out of you.
    I admire your blog design skills. Your photography, your ability to make me actually look at something instead of scrolling past.
    Someday I'll be as great as you, if I try.

    Fly. We believe in you.

  4. YOUR HEADER. IS JUST PERFECTION.
    I miss you, Maddie.
    I may not be your best friend, but I've always looked up to you. Your photography is gorgeous. You know who you are and you're not afraid to tell the world. You make me think, you make tons of people think when they read your posts. You are you. And I honestly love that.
    Please continue to keep yourself sane.

    xo,
    Charlotte

  9. Aww Maddie.
    I think you've had your fall.
    Now all you have to do is get up and fly.
    And believe me, when you do fly, you're going to fly higher than anyone's ever gone before.
