Beauty Marks

Humans

Are

Made

Already

With

Errors           

And the moment we change the definition of ERROR

is the moment we can finally LIVE

The moment

We can finally BREATHE

The moment

We can look out into the world and say

“WHY NOT?”

The moment

We can stop thinking everything has to be

“RIGHT” to be RIGHT

Realize we’re all just a bunch of

Loose Screws

That being in LOVE

Isn’t the only way to be HAPPY

Stop thinking

Everything has to be ATTRACTIVE

To be BEAUTIFUL

 

Believe that WRONG

doesn’t mean it’s not RIGHT

Replace the word NORMAL with the word NO ONE

And the word PERFECT with the word INSANE

AND REALIZE

that maybe it’s okay to be:

   ·        A FREAK

·        INSECURE

   ·        A FIRM BELIEVER THAT A PICTURE OF A CAT SAYING “Everything is going to be alright!” IS NOT GOING TO MAKE EVERYTHING ALRIGHT.

 

to believe that it’s okay

to cry

and feel weak

AS LONG AS ONCE WE’RE DONE

WE GET UP

AND DUST OURSELVES OFF

 

We look to challenges as if they stand

AS MOUNTAINS

and look back at accomplishments

that seem like ant hills

AND WE ALL STARE AT THE CEILING AT NIGHT LOOKING FOR THE ANWSERS

GOD DARE NOT SPEAK OF

and what do we have left?

a few short answers

made of duct tape

and safety pins

and like us,

barely holding itself together?

 

On your good days you tell yourself others have it worse

and on your bad days

it doesn’t matter

because it still hurts.

AND AS WE SHOUT AND WE SCREAM AND WE YELL

WE RELEASE OURSELVES

FROM THE CHAINS

WE BIND OURSELVES

IN.

 

 

 

 

 

To know that it’s okay:

·       To cry

·         To have questions

·         To feel like you just want to FALL OFF A CLIFF

 

BECAUSE LIFE SUCKS

BUT BEING ALIVE DOESN’T MEAN YOU'RE LIVING

IT’S BEING WILLING TO RISK THE BURDEN OF LIFE

JUST FOR THOSE SPECIAL OCCASIONS

 

THOSE:

·         JOKES THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH UNTIL YOU CRY

·         PEOPLE THAT (you might not truly believe) CARE ABOUT YOU

·         SMILES BROUGHT BY NO REASON AT ALL

 

BECAUSE YEAH,

EVERYONE AGREES LIFE CAN BE CRAP

BUT THE MOMENT

YOU REALIZE LIFE ISN’T ALWAYS CRAP

Is the moment you realize all of the beautiful moments you’ve taken for granted.

 

that is the moment you realize

THAT

HUMANS

ARE

MADE

ALREADY

WITH

ERRORS

BUT

WE

SHOULDN’T

WEAR

THEM

AS

SCARS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

but rather,

beauty marks.
