Favorite Quote:
"Some of you may have taken history or civics classes that outlined the freedoms one expects in a democracy. At the heart of those freedoms is choice... With an affirmative choice, all democracy vanishes."

Hear the cries and laughter
Just sing
Lose it all
Waste more than you make
Live life
Eat food, drink wine
Do not worry about tomorrow
You might not make it that far
If you get hurt
And the pain feels fatal
You are doing it correctly
Steal a bowl full of candy on Halloween
The feeling of guilt means you’re doing it correctly
Punch someone
Land yourself into a tiny room with the principal
And her stupid waterfall meant to relax you
If there are tears on your cheeks
If your mother is on the other side of the phone, screaming at you
You are doing it correctly
Rap in the hallways
When people throw things, swear at you
You are doing it correctly
Stand outside
Let the freezing autumn rain
Pelt you
Search the skies for a star
Beneath the navy skies and opaque clouds
When you cry because it seems like all the stars have disappeared ‘cause of you?
You’re wishing correctly
Look for your friends
The people you love, the ones you spent your life with
When they turn away on the streets,
When they pretend they do not see you
You are doing it correctly
When you cry on your pillow
And suffocate through every breath
Your heart is breaking correctly.
