No use in controlling and anticipating others when you can’t even determine yourself.
If it’s what you really want, and it’s not hurting anyone else in any conceivable manner, then what does it matter what everyone else thinks?
I think that, honestly, in the end, it doesn’t matter. We’ve been plagiarizing the entirety of our lives from already verbalized ideals. There’s nothing to look forward to except for the validation of things we cling onto.
There are many ways of spelling “Stravinsky” on your phone when you’re drunk and without auto-correct. You are not yourself when you lose yourself with intention. The keypad is incapable of recollecting the smudge of a fingerprint; your alias wears gloves and spills lies with each liquor exhale. Sitting loosely around the station corner is a person with a can of coins at his feet. He’s there every day and every night with a different face. Sometimes he is a man, sometimes he is a she instead. Sometimes she is a pile of rags you sweep away from your vision. Sometimes she is a dog half-dead, half-asleep, at the feet of a man who hoards sounds from claps and shouts he makes, begging to be lost into a world where the lost are saved. They are not you, nor the person you pretend to be. Give or take a loose ten dollar bill abused in the wind, you’re going to float in this life where everyone else flies. Even the weather has a purpose, but you yourself have none. Put your coat on - it’s six pm and the wind harbors August. We’re going home.

With effort and if circumstances are favourable, you will stop feeling sorry for yourself.
You can feel alone in the presence of others, but what I wanted yesterday was to be truly alone in the presence of only myself.
Yesterday when I got drunk at 12pm and ran around the beach alone all day and forgot everything I thought I knew about being afraid
All that I am - an imitation.

You have to stand still for the world to revolve around you, and you have to stand alone.
I had a dream last night that I worked at McDonalds and I was behind the counter when this guy dressed in a tuxedo (with white dickie and tie) was snapping his fingers for a server. I went I over and he asked to see our “darkest red” and I knew he was talking about wine so I said “sir, this is McDonalds. The darkest red we have here is ketchup” and he had me pour him a glass of ketchup and he drank it while looking me directly in the eye.

I hate it when people say that youth is fearless, or maybe that’s just me.
And whilst you were busy taking your place in the spotlight, I was more interested in finding out who it was that stood behind the door. That’s the kind of person I am. I don’t see the point at hand, because I can’t understand why it deserves to be the point.
I'm not sad, I'm tired.
I slept too much today.
