My 4 year old brother told me he was scared to grow up and cried for like 10 minutes straight
finally I asked why he was so scared
and he said he was scared of drinking coffee
Iman is like an airplane ride, the higher you go up the smaller the things on earth look.
- Imam Safi Khan
Seeing my friend’s flat grave stone placed over where he is buried really made it all sink in. It’s there and it’s real and not just grass beneath your feet but someone I grew up with who left this world at the age of 23 earlier this year.
There’s a lot of things in this world I am learning to grasp and accept but death has always been the most difficult.
People who are tough and mean on the outside are always so fragile when you get to know them and people who are soft and sweet on the outside are really strong and dark on the inside. It’s something I picked up over the years.
