Finn Butler

This is phenomenal:


Saltwater 

Everyone who terrifies you is 65% water,

and everyone you love is made of stardust,

and I know, sometimes

you cannot breathe deeply, and

the night sky is no home, and

you have cried yourself to sleep enough times

that you are down to your last 2 percent,

but 

nothing is infinite,

not even loss.

You are made of the sea and stars, and

one day

you are going to find yourself again.

Finn Butler

And lately for me, this song:
Just Breathe by Pearl Jam
