While I was out on the trail on Saturday I took this photo of a plant, some type of wildflower that had died due to the cold. The beautiful golden colour of the dead plant caught my eye. Found this amazing quote which I feel truly feel relates to the photo.I’m happy but sad, alive but dead, outside I thrive on falsified joy whilst on the inside I’m pained by my thoughts, not knowing what to do yet doing what I keep doing to survive.
