Just something out of my guts.
Guide to a Reckless World
Welcome to reality. Choose your weapons. You won’t get out without fighting.
Choose your masks. You won’t live without disguises.
Choose your registries. You won’t exist without leaving marks.
Choose your strength. You won’t resist only with weaknesses.
Dry your tears when no one is interested. Forget about happy times if they can’t turn into discomfort. Choose sadness. Value suffering – it is more productive.
Never lose your sight, even if your eyes are torn.
Expose your scars. Pain deserves to be remembered.
Feed your demons. Let your saints and angels get drunk.
Fall in love for images. Cultivate obsessions. Observe meticulously.
Let obligations aside if they don’t suit you.
Foster your fears. Ruminate your uncertainties.
Allow yourself to scream. As many times as you need to.
Be honest. Be rude. Don’t use euphemisms.
Makes mistakes. A lot of them. Learn even more.
If you have to kill, don’t ask for forgiveness.
Get away from beauty. Choose subversion.
Let it flow.
