AIN’T NO PLACE FOR NO HERO?

Ain’t no place for no hero?

Well, I eventually realized; we either decide to become or are forced at a point in time to become our own hero.

It’s not the movies kid, no one is going to save you… I am sorry to break it to you. Only we can truly save ourselves. I know I can be a cynic from time to time but this has nothing to do with it. You need to realize in order to survive, you have to be the salvation you may be waiting for; You can sit, wait, beg or cower for all I care… well guess what? no one is coming. I am not saying this to cripple you with fear, its quite the opposite – I am saying this in the hopes to make you stronger, gripping at the idea that some may find freedom and inspiration within this blunt message.

Find freedom in knowing it is up to you, we all hold the power because you’re stronger than you will ever imagine. Now find beauty and freedom within this message, draw deeply from the well of strength hidden within the spirit and become your own hero despite adversity – whatever the outcome.

While doing this, do not disregard the people who truly support us. There are few people in life I rarely rely on, seek guidance from, learn from… To those people, you know who you are to me and what you mean to me, for that… Thank you.

Ain’t no place for no hero? then there definitely ain’t no place for a coward.

With love,

OJW.

BLACK & WHITE COLLECT.

At times, I struggle to see the point of it all. Why we carry so much weight, unnecessary burdens, hide things that shouldn’t be hidden, show things that shouldn’t be shown. I don’t feel the heavy loneliness I used to as a child, a teenager and even as an adult… When I slowly gazed upon the man I have become, I am reminded to try to be here more, be conscious in the moment, rather than in another memory or looking too far forward. I know I’ll never truly “fit in” anywhere, so… Am I to wander? or were you the home I wanted all along?

I know what you might be thinking “oh how cynical of him” or “oh how dramatic” – well I’ll have you know, that while I am still young, it is not a reason to excuse the pain I have felt, it does not make our pain any less important because a great amount can happen in 24 years of living.  I was never here for attention, I was never here for love. I am just a simpler soul who cares for taking great photographs for others to enjoy. while I write, the quote by Aristotle about purpose in life echoes in my mind.

I am not expecting forgiveness for the things I have done, I am not seeking redemption in the eyes of others, I am only seeking redemption in my own heart. I found something more in you, more important to most than redemption, I found a home.

I only regret, not spending more time with you before I had to leave again.

sincerely,

OJW

COLOUR IN

SHADOW

Think of the person in your life that is holding you back the most, the person you dislike, the person who puts you down, the person that even when you’re already down they kick you again, think of the person who told you “YOU CAN’T DO IT!” now I want you to keep thinking of that person in your mind… and then forget about them –  because the only person holding YOU back is the same motherf@#ker that is staring you back in the mirror every day when you wake up.

The process, happens in the shadows, in the DARK dark – anyone in the golden light of victory that is doing what they love is only there because they worked hard in the darkness when nobody is watching what do you really do? There are talented people and there are skilled people, both can be just as successful as the other; just one has to work a little harder for it.

DARK ROADS.

Robert Frost once said “In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life: it goes on

I agree; because achieving inner peace is a struggle we all deal with at times,

Don’t forget that trusty moral compass, stay that straight shooter you always knew you were…

I’m not from around these parts you see; I’m from the distant specs, I’m from the space dust, from the floating black & white colours that we miss at day and hide from when the day goes away.

I’m from the universe… and guess what?

So are you.

EMOTION.

For most… there isn’t much more dire for us than our emotions, although you have to realise how the balance between acknowledging, accepting and moving on from them is very close to being manipulated and enslaved by them.

In the words of Les Brown “you either use your emotions or they use you”

You should remind yourself, that you too are loved deeply. You may be sad or angry at the world, but you have to remember that we are only here temporarily – time is the only king on earth and the only truly precious commodity we have, yet we give so little to the ones we love the most and so much of us spend it within tasks and elements of matter we disbelieve in. I remember when we went to the museum and we wrote letters to strangers and I picked a letter addressed “to the lonely soul” and I will never forget what I read that day with you and how a letter from a stranger to another moved me; in those moments when you first saw my quiet curiosity, my tenderness and how I almost cried in that exhibit.

The letter goes as follows…

To the lonely soul,

there  is always someone on the earth that cares for you & loves you.

I promise.

 

Warm regards,

The lonely soul.

ELEMENT

Find your element, then put everything you have into it… don’t let people talk you out of it. If you haven’t found your “element” yet, keep looking. Do not stop searching for your purpose in this world. I want you to look everywhere within and without yourself until you find what makes you happy, where you feel a sense of belonging and purpose, where you don’t have to fight the upstream current, where you can be in your element and excel instead of compete.

OJW
