Impossibly clever and cunningly cute.”

Boy/ Portrait Photography, Jamestown ND

” A boy is Truth with dirt on it’s face,

Beauty with a cut on it’s finger,

Wisdom with bubble gum in it’s hair, and

the Hope of the future with a frog in it’s pocket.”

One night

when you were just a star

someone hung every hope ever dream they ever

had from your limbs;

so if you ever feel inferior

ever start to doubt

your beauty or brilliance

just remember:

You have constellations lining the cathedral

walls of your chest,

a moon for a heart,

and the sunlight poring through your skin.

you are a symphony of stardust and

you were born to shine.

  • Tyler Kent White

” So take the photographs and still frames in your mind. Hang it on a shelf in good health and good time. Tattoos and memories and dead skin on trial. For what it’s worth it was worth all the while.

It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right, I hope you had the time of your life.”

” Tread lightly and gently in this world.

Let wildflowers grow between your toes.

Dance freely to your own heart song.

And bathe your core in all the wondrous magic that surrounds you.”
