Suit: Suit Supply // Shirt: Suit Supply // Tie: Drake’s // Pocket Square: Drake’s // Shoes: Meermin
The summer I started running. I swear it was cause I wanted to be fit. But that was probably the toughest summer I’ve had mentally. It was so bloody refreshing. Running for an hour a day, away from home, away from myself. Now I can’t stop running, from everything. It’s not even summer yet and I have a list of shit to run from.
A day will come when you least expect it.
It will hit you like the first day of summer,
fields painted yellow with dandelions
Sprouting amongst green grass;
Survival is for the fittest.
30 degrees of sunshine kissing the ground and not a worry in sight
By this day
You would have walked miles with sin harnessed to your ankles
And sun glasses enhancing your 20/20 worldly vision
It will all taste as sweet as freshly made lemonade
But the thirst will return
For something better
Always crave a something a little sweeter
more potent than the last
I for one know this too well
Recognize this sort of day like déjà vu
Like it was yesterday
Standing tall for months alone
Turning a deaf ear to the spirit
Spending nights with my vices
I even made em breakfast on many mornings.
Insecurities masked with lust,
Lost, forgetting to
Pray for forgiveness
I miss my grandmother
Her smile mostly
And how she gave me guinea fowls for my birthday.
