Split between two halves.
Never knowing which path to choose.
Love or lust, old or new.
A path to walk down alone and confused.
Hearts begins slowly beating cold.
Torn apart inside out is more than one person can hold.
Sometimes I don’t want tomorrow, just right now.
Oh, beauty is a beguiling call to death and I’m addicted to the sweet pitch of its siren. That that starts sweet ends bitter, and that which starts bitter ends sweet.
One of the most notorious lines in the movie Rock N’ Rolla. It speaks so much truth. Beauty is something that always fools us. Everyone has this want and need to either be beautiful or to have something beautiful. In ways it is saying that something that starts out beautiful will end in ugliness and something that begins in ugliness may end in beauty. Sometimes this is very true in many cases. This is one of my favorite lines. Though the quote as a whole goes along a bad path there is definite meaning behind it.
Something you can never get back once it’s lost. As hard as you try you can’t turn back, you can’t change anything that had happened. All we have is the ability to look forward. Make the best of what we have and not waste what little time we still have. The more we dwell on the past drains away the life we have left to live. Instead of allowing the past to consume your everyday life, drown you in sorrow for every little thing you couldn’t do, triumph over it. Appreciate the obstacles you faced while on this journey through life. Everything happens for a reason. Good or bad, everyone has to walk down the same path in one way or another. Everyone deserves to live a wonderful life but to peril in your past will only detract from the life you can live. Time is on your side but only if you pursue the opportunity.
Goodbyes are more than leaving. It is a loss of hope that you once held so close. It’s forgetting memories that you cared so much for. Goodbye means having to miss, having to hurt. A goodbye isn’t something easy, ever. It means leaving a part of yourself behind for someone else to pick up.
“Everyone cheats, I just didn’t know it.” Dave, Breaking Away
I just watched this movie in a class and this really spoke to me. It is true everyone does cheat. Maybe not on a test or something like that but everyone cheats themselves one way or another. It maybe they cheat themselves by telling themselves they aren’t good enough for something or that they can’t do something because they aren’t smart enough. Either way, anyone can relate to it. Big or small, each person has cheated themselves out of something. It something that has opened my eyes to things that I cheated myself out of doing.
