When gazing into the unknown it is often times that humans miss on the positives that pass by us, moments that can rip the roots from under the sturdy truck. Not only are these precious moments terrifying, but also ground breaking. In some moments they can literally shatter and break the ground holding up, or a car and body.

As he drew near to the smudged window to get a better glimpse at the bright star dancing over the water below, his glasses reflected in the lens in the corner of my eye, as I turned, blinding and destroying the control on which I held. Snapping me back into the present, the blaring sound of horns honked behind me as I stood overlooking the San Francisco Bay.

Our world is advancing so this means that other unacceptable things will surface and cause problems because we give them the chance to arise. One of the things we can do to make this a better place is tell that someone 's in danger which will end up saving their lives.

no one can stop what is happening… not even God it seems. Worrying a colorful image of an unchangeable past is an ominous blurry vision of the present; my heart and mind is in a constant state of fluctuation and confusion… occasional clarity of thought lends a coherent method of management of life. Of what the future holds, no one knows exactly. And, without verbalizing exactly what keeps plaguing my thoughts, I cannot be true to myself.
