Life As A Writer

Michael Daaboul. 26 y/o from Australia/Melbourne. Digital Designer & Creative Writer.

I want you to know that I will not push you, I will not force you. I have no control over your decisions or your choices. It’s your life, and the path you take is entirely up to you. I can love you, I can play every note on every instrument to express what I feel for you and I can write in every language of what my heart sings for you if you don’t understand my complex emotions. I’ll show you, I’ll hold you, I’ll be by your side, but, I will not push you away.

Lie To Me

Student: Why do people say things they don't mean?
Teacher: To be nice, maybe, it’s a little bit of respect.
Student: People are mean anyway! If they don’t mean it, I don’t think that’s worthy of respect.
Teacher: Some people speak their mind though.
Student: Will the world be a better place if people did speak their mind?
Teacher: Probably not.
Excerpt from Humans Are Programs By Michael Daaboul
Have you seen the way he looks at her? I have never seen him look at another person like this before. It’s almost as if in the day the Sun reflects off his eyes and into hers, before nightfall, the sunset sinks beside their hearts. You have to see what happens at midnight, the Moon looms right behind them. I have never seen that before. It’s funny because, he always used to say to me, wait, it doesn’t come often; magic, but when it does you will know that’s what you have been looking for this entire time.

Generation Y

We’re a sad horse; we are disappointed with the world because our expectations are not in view with reality. No, we’re not lazy, but expect a lot. We’re ambitious, flowery and want fulfilment and meaningful relationships.

We’re green with envy of everyone else, some think their grass is always green, when we look over the fence, it’s a marvellous wonderland. Have you seen what’s in the shed? Everyone is just like you. They’re not sure what they’re doing, clinging to whatever hope they can muster, floating in the dark, can’t decide on what they want, always frustrated and annoyed at everything. No self-confidence or overly confident and miserable at the world.

Concentrate on the most important part; yourself. Stop looking over the fence, don’t look for distractions. Work towards YOU and don’t worry about everyone else.

Hi Michael, I have seen the No One There quote you wrote on all of my friends' Tumblr feeds, and led me to your blog. I know it's so simple, but I love it. Because it's really true, like you're always there, like you wrote, and no one is there for you. It's like in my relationship now, I feel like I'm always there for him, but I feel like I'm not a priority. He will be with some other friend or a BFF. Supposed to be with me more often. Sorry for the long msg and rant. Love your blog, following!!

It hurt.

It was hard, but harder believing it was not the truth. You shall stand there and little by little you shall stop looking for me, as in time of my forgetting, I shall stop looking for you. I have passed through salvation; and know this my dear, my demons have departed.

You won’t be the same, no, you won’t be, and you were never supposed to be. This is your changing, this is the process and in the hour of your separation, no one was there to help you and there was no words that could save you.

I love the way you write and recently I have realized I want to pursue journalism, so you definitely are one of the people on this site who inspire me. I hope to write as sincere and vulnerable as you one day.
