Quote of the day:
There will be days when you’ll be forced to make decisions that affect the lives of everyone you love, choices that will change you forever.
You reach an age when you realize that being a man isn’t about respect or strength; it’s about being aware of all the things you touch.
Children face inward, wallow in their own selfish needs.
Men face out, take action on the needs of others.
I’m at that place, boys. I’m staring one of those decisions in the face and it looks back at me with historical eyes and it calls me a coward, a killer, a fraud. It wants me to crack, and run from the service of my fate like a broken boy.
Today I will not do that. Today, I will be the man my father tried to be.
I will make you proud. -Jax
Definitely newest obsession.
I’d like to be a note. The kind you could sing, but don’t, because you’re shy. That way I live inside your throat, and ache from every word you spoke.
You’re all I see, sink into me. Sharpen your teeth, sink into me.
I’d like to see you have your way. Come on, have your way with me.
Someone, I don’t remember who, made the point with this comforting phrase: ‘Good writers are appreciated more for what they tear up than for what they publish.’
This is how to run a stick of Chapstick
down the black boxes on your scantron
so the grading machine skips the wrong
answers. This is how to honor roll. Hell,
this is how to National Honor Society.
This is being voted “Most Likely to Marry
for Money” or “Talks the Most, Says the
Least” for senior superlatives. This is
stepping around the kids having panic
attacks in the hallway. This is being the
kid having a panic attack in the hallway.
This is making the A with purple moons
stamped under both eyes. We had to try.
This is telling the ACT supervisor you have
ADHD to get extra time. Today, the average
high school student has the same anxiety
levels as the average 1950’s psychiatric
patient. We know the Pythagorean theorem
by heart, but short-circuit when asked
“How are you?” We don’t know. We don’t
know. That wasn’t on the study guide.
We usually know the answer, but rarely
A man can break every commandment
and the world still will lend him a hand
Yet, a girl that has loved, but un-wisely
is an outcast all over the land
Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)- Nico Vega
Seasons came and changed the time
Bonnie and Clyde’s car after they were killed in 1934.
"Bang, bang he shot me down.
Bang, bang I hit the ground.
Bang, bang That awful sound.
Bang, bang my baby shot me down.”-Nico vega.
