Live fast die young,thatís really how I feel sometimes. Death is inevitable. Itís going to come to everyone. Fuck, thatís depressing though because I want to be able to do all the things that I want and be able to do them well. Something about walking around with a cane or walker, with my back all hunched up not to mention not getting "it" up, just kills me sometimes. Then again I guess everybody thinks about it, but me too much I think. Thatís always been a problem of mine, thinking too much. People think that itís a blessing. It shows that Iím smart and blah blah blah blah blah, but really thinking too much can be a real curse. Iíve had so many opportunities to broaden my horizons and world experience but I thought so much about pros and cons that the chance passed me right by. Sometimes itís all right though cuz you canít miss what you never had, you know? Lifeís doors open and shut at random times and if you donít make in the door before it closes you never know when it might open again. Thatís the beauty of life, there are so many doors, so many ways to do things that it never gets boring unless you let it.
Live fast. Living fast is more mental than physical. You have to have a certain mentality to get into the fast track of life and keep it there. Taking risks, not following the rules, saying fuck you in the face of authority, taking drugs, drinking, never knowing what your next move is going to be, thatís the way I live usually. Punk rockís not dead, it just smells like it but the way society views me is never going to be true. I will always be more than punk rock, I am something that cannot be defined. Adventure. Nine to five then going to the bar after work or on the weekend just isnít cutting it. Iím starting to realize that no one can tell you how to live your life accept you!
Trial and error. You have to fuck up to learn. I think once you accept that, your falls become more like slips. You live fast you learn fast. Some donít learn fast though. Just take a look outside, you see people who fell and could not or refuse to get back up. Me, personally, I have narrowly escaped many a disaster in my life, but I refuse to let the downfalls become permanent for me. I have too much that I want to do. Whether or not Iíll live long enough to become successful I donít know. I donít really care about glamorized fame but I do want to leave my mark on this world before I die through my paintings, my music, my words and my life in general.
Giving V.S. Receiving. Believe that in life every action has a reaction. If your actions are kind and generous you are spreading energy into life that is good. Therefore your life will reflect that I think. When I was a street hustler I took advantage of so many people and I never looked back. I soon wondered why my life was such a mess. So I believe that you reap what you sow. When youíre living fast itís hard to look at what your becoming. It changes you inside, you stop giving a fuck and then you are fucked. L.O.L.stands for laugh out loud. Humour can save you when youíre down, just being able to laugh about things that are happening shows you that things arenít usually that serious. Also it helps to see the lighter side because things could always be worse. Living fast will teach you that very quickly. Spontaneity will help you feel alive. To be in the moment is Zen. Thinking too much can lead you away from your spontaneous side, and we all have one. That side of you that wants to do something and then you just do it, no worries at all just going with the flow is what they call it.
Good V.S. Evil. A famous philosopher once asked one of his peers what good and evil were and who should be able to decide which is which. The true answer I think is in your heart and soul. You can feel when something isnít right you have a feeling when it is right, you just know. Only problem is not everyone is on the same wavelength. You and I are two different people who went through two different versions of the same story. Although we can be on same page at times we all have a different system when it comes to weighing out the right and wrong of life therefore right and wrong arenít "real", it is just a perception. Perceiving things is life. When you are presented with an obstacle you think about it and perceive it a certain way and then act accordingly. I want to have a clear mind when I perceive anything because things arenít always what they seem. One manís trash is another manís treasure. Confronting your desires. Society will tell you that because something isnít accepted by the masses that itís not cool or acceptable to do. FUCK THAT. Thatís what I have to say about that. I want to blow the critics out of the water cuz they donít know shit. Most people have desires to do things but they are too much of a fucking pussy to try it so they make fun of you for being different. In my life crazy is the new "normalĒ. Itís 2009, itís time to have a revolution and to fight for your right to get the most satisfaction out of your life cuz you only got one. So live as fast as you want and donít let any one tell you youíre over the goddamn speed limit. PEACE.
