"tattoos the words ‘forgive me’…down the inside of his arm so that when he looks at his wrist he will remember
not to hate himself so much.” - Buddy Wakefield ~ Human The Death Dance
My handwriting. The butterfly is a symbol of self injury recovery. This tattoo and poem mean so much more to me than I could ever say

Teardrops fell into my open suitcase, I was unbearably sad, but how I wanted to live! I was ready to embrace and pack into my short life all that was accessible to man. I wanted to talk, and read, and pound with a hammer somewhere in a big factory, and stand watch, and till the soil.

This was my first tattoo. The quote comes from James Allen. 
“The greatest achievement was at first and for a time a dream. The oak sleeps in the acorn; the bird waits in the egg; and in the highest vision of the soul a waking angel stirs. Dreams are the seedlings of realities.”
At the time I got it, I was out of high school but not in college, and didn’t know where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do. People had been rushing me all my life, telling me where I should go and what I should do, because “time was wasting.” But 10 years later I can tell you, in life, as in plants, or in cooking, or many of the other pleasurable pursuits, it’s not about how fast you accomplish something, but that you do it well. No one realizes how a dream you held at 18 will reappear, fully-limbed and strong, 10 or 20 years later. The tiniest things can be capable of producing the biggest surprises.

And sometimes remembering will lead to a story, which makes it forever. That’s what stories are for. Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories are for those late hours in the night when you can’t remember how you got from where you were to where you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased, when there is nothing to remember except the story.
