Life is uncertainty, a game of Russian roulette with 5 chambers loaded and the sixth a mystery left for you to solve. It’s the blind spot between infinity and oblivion, a moratorium on objective thought and a doorway to senseless action. Life is standing at the crossroads with a chasm behind and infinite possibility on the horizon, life is the untinged sweetness of cinnamon and the bitterness of your freshly roasted coffee. Life is misunderstandings and knowing glances from best friends. It’s waking up because of grace and laying your head to rest because of mercy. Life is the possibility to plan and the strength to face uncertainty. It’s two separate souls finding each other in a world of billions and knowing that impossible is as abstract as the word L-O-V-E. Life is sitting up at 12:27, remember a friend and thinking that we should have lived more of our dreams because “LIFE” is what you make it.
