it is time to abandon your old life
and jump into the fray; life.
reality seems so fake, structured,
so that we have to follow the guidelines.

to me, it feels like poison being
choked down my throat, scalding away
words that may rebel against the
rigidness of society / how can you
make a life of your own when everyone
is telling you what to do, where to go,
how to do this and that.

i just don't want to slip between the
cracks and surrender my life to the
safest option / i want to be dangerous
and taste smoke under my tongue,
not watch it burn in a suburban fireplace
twenty years from now.
