When did everything turn into shit?
You always planned for later. But when will you think for now?
If you think life’s a game, there’s no restart button.
Quit trying to feel so unique.
It’s funny how all plans end the same, but denial is hilarious.
My heart is the tightest cell, cemented in compromise and caged by fear.
If love’s left unshared, it’ll turn into hate.
A cross section mentality of contradictory living founded my dishonest individuality. I don’t know who I am anymore and who I want to be.
I just hope there’s still time to find out.
Is it too late?
