There are so many moments in life that we pine for things we have lost, things that we can never have, things that we desire. And because of these desires we lose ourselves. We get lost in the thing and forget that we are greater than the desire. We have the choice and the will to get what we want or leave it to fate.
Even through the darkness of the broken mind, the heart shows clearly what we desire, and it is up to us to get it or not... to live with the consequences and grow from each experience.
"It does not do to dwell on dreams and forget to live."
