Learn to say “Fuck You”
to the world once in a while.
You have every right to.
Just stop thinking, worrying,
looking over your shoulder,
wondering, doubting, fearing,
hoping for some easy way out,
struggling, gasping, confusing,
itching, scratching, mumbling,
scrambling, hatching, bitching,
groaning, horse-shitting, nit-picking,
evil-eyeing, back-scratching, grinding
grinding grinding away at yourself.
Stop it. Don’t worry about cool.
Make your own uncool.
Make your own, your own world.
