To know a building you must know
The people in it.
And those who don’t.
And those who won’t.
Flight is not the same as flying
where a return needs a ticket
in exchange for a mistake,
voiding the journey into a
conversation on a place mat.
And changing cities is not the same
to a different plane
To follow your dream you must
first choose it by yourself
Until you are at peace with your words,
declarations are of no consequence
