"Don't think or judge. Just listen."

No one ever says life is easy.

Life is hard.

But everyone is entitled to happiness, right?

No one sugar coats it.

They may try to make you feel like less of a person by saying,

"Someone else has it worse."

But you have every right.

So, let's throw everyone in jail.

It's in the constitution, right?


Everything is a contradiction.

Especially the government.

My memories get mixed up with my thoughts and sometimes,

I can't seem to find my reality.

What happened?

What didn't happen?

Everything seems clear to me..

But it isn't.

How can I possibly feel OK?


They were never my age.


My grandma was never my age.

My aunt was never my age.

None of them were ever my age.

None of you.

All we have is this generation.

And so many of us don't understand.

Some people do try to help.

But I am lost for words..

I don't know that you care.

What do you really want from me?


I need to know that you care.

But sometimes I don't even understand myself.

So how could you possibly understand me?

This world is scary.

If we are entitled to happiness...
