“The apple doesn't fall far from the tree." I guess that means we're just products of whoever made us and we don't have much control. The thing is, when people use that phrase, they ignore the most critical part: the falling. Within the logic of that saying, the apple falls every single time. Not falling isn't an option. So, if the apple has to fall, the most important question in my mind is what happens to it upon hitting the ground? Does it touch down with barely a scratch? Or does it smash on impact? Two vastly different fates. When you think about it, who cares about its proximity to the tree or what type of tree spawned it? What really makes all the difference, then, is how we land.”
― Val Emmich, Dear Evan Hansen

Normals a word i do not get

it never exists and never forgets

people continue to pretend they are

the same as the rest, though not by far

So do not strive to be the normal one

be the crazy, miraculous, and fun

never forget that you are not

the only one

People continue to pretend to "follow the norm" or be normal. Normal isn't real. Please understand that its okay to try and fit in, but I would love if we could try and work together just to be ourselves.
