SpeakDo you ever wonder why people talk so much? We talk even when no one is listening, when people are just sitting there acting as if they are comprehending everything you are saying, but in actuality they are completely caught up in their own minds. Why do we continue to speak?Speak by sxe-pronoun
Do we do it to fill space? Because talking makes time pass more quickly? More painlessly? Why are we so interested in moving time along at such an unnatural pace? Why don't we enjoy the sound of silence? Why don't we enjoy stretching time as far as it will expand? Why don't we savour the few moments we have in life? Because, in the end, that's all that life is, a few moments. And those few moments define us completely.
I guess you could say that life is useless in a way. Well, maybe not useless, but very redundant. Why is it that we endure and withstand so much suffering and utter boredom just so that we can experience savour those few absolutely delicious and juicy moments in our lives, the moments that define ou
CloudsDo you ever wonder what clouds are made of? I do.Clouds by sxe-pronoun

We would walk until we found our blueberry patch. There was a tiny stream running alongside it, and the bushes grew in a sort of horseshoe shape. We spent most of our summer days there, talking about things that only mattered to six-year-olds and eating the sweet blueberries nature had given us.
