"The strangeness of this life CANNOT be measured."
re-discovering myself, one piece at a time. evolving and growing the hard way and find the small serenity when I am finished, though my head be bloody from banging it against the wall. Now I tend to notice the door in that wall. And once I am through, I fly.

Rolling along the highway at 5:34 in the morning. Just plain cruisin’. The soft blue arrives again and I think about the other side of life not spoken about. The one where you joke about how farting in your chair at work keeps you warm because the company is too cheap to turn on the heat.Fri, October 24, 2008 - 7:43 AM permalink - 0 comments

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school,
They hate you if you're clever [I hate you, you’re smarter than me] and they despise a fool [I hate you, you so fucking dumb],
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules,
“I can’t do that, something bad might happen. Can’t speak my mind I might get fired. I was told to write what I wanted, but I’m getting in-school suspension for writing about ‘bad things’….”
