We, our minds, and the wild things

Oh, where all the wild things are, there rests my soul. Surely dancing among the thorns of heavily scented roses, surely waiting for her time to step into the real world. To live a little bit less in her head. Oh lord! I have just realized: I’ve spent most of my life closed-up in there! How beautifully limiting. Or limitless? Because one needs an open and understanding environment to be his own person and do his own things.Perhaps my mind has been the most appropriate environment so far. I do no...

What is the truth, my truth? And where do I find that language of my soul everyone seems to talk about?I spend a lot of time with myself, perhaps too much. Overthinking things is my favorite hobby; there’s nothing that gives me more pleasure and misery. I try really hard to be inexplicably complicated, incomprehensible to others, to myself. I do my best to induce obstacles, doubts, complications, and delusions. You might call me a master at it.There is no real reason why I do it, I simply prefer...

Am I not enough for you? Because of my age? Because of the lack of my skin showing?Am I not good enough for you in my simple, plain form? With my loose, casual hair and my oversized sweatpants? Laughing at some little things, watching cartoons, craving for snacks and sweets and cakes?Am I too out spoken for you? Do my words bother you? Do you find my restless, rebelious spirit irritating and annoying? Do you want me to shut up, like all the other girls usually do? Do you want me to care just abo...

A woman should and is supposed to stay at home, he said.Her job should be taking care of the kids and the house, while her husband is at work providing for them, he said.What a sexist, I thought.What an uneducated, clueless man. Maybe I am only 17, and I haven’t even finished college yet, and I do stupid things in life because I’m young and reckless, but it’s rather him than me who is completely inappropriate and uncultivated.What is the difference between a man and a woman? They both have a chi...

Oh sweet child!The fear in your innocent eyes, the trembling of your tiny hands, the salty tears wetting your face should not be your ‘good night’. The pain you feel through your bruised, little body should have never been implanted on you. Parents represent our world, they are our biggest support and comfort in life. But that comfort does not come in a form of a fist. A hand raised over your scared face, a punch to your body, insults and curses.No child deserves this cruel treatment. You don’t...

May you always see the goodness in people. No matter how mean or vicious they look. Everyone has a soft side. A compassionate one. That cares about people and their well-being. And may you always encounter this side in people. If you don't, don't give up. Don't walk away. Don't be resentful. Give them a chance. Look for a ray of light in their eyes. Search for a place where their skin is warm. Find a mild, kind tone in their words. Believe in their goodness even when they don't. It's easy to aba...

You called me up. I wondered why you were calling. There's no need to say more; all was said and done. I gave you up. I lost you. I pushed you away. I didn't care. It doesn't matter that now I do. All is already gone. I cannot accept you into my heart anymore. Your childish spirit doesn't belong in my body anymore. I want you to come back, I try to recreate your playful spirit everyday but it's useless. I am changed. I am grown up now. A child's face doesn't fit me anymore, child's words don't f...

You that are killing me, are giving me hope.Blood disgusts me, but I’ll get over it, I’ll get used to it.I feel like scratching my scars, I feel like peeling off the dead skin off my lips, but I’ll resist it.I won’t go crazy, I won’t beg you to leave me, I won’t destroy myself.You just have to give me hope.I see the way you look at me. You’re cruel, but you feel sorry. You wish you could wash the blood off my scratches with some alcohol. And when you clean my tiny arms from the red water of my b...

Your face full of loose wrinkles, your eyes yearning for the good-old days when you were young, wild and free.Will your children forget you? Will they put you in a retirement home?Maybe you’ll sit in a wheelchair being too weak to walk. And you’ll probably be taking a lot of pills- for your tired heart to function well, for proper digestion, for that dizzy feeling in your head you get once in a while.Will you want to go outside and be normal? Or you’ll just go out when one of your friends transc...
