We’re swimming in what we believe to be an ocean,
Dreaming because we need a new reality,
Faking because at our best we are all liars,
Believing that one day we will all be alright.
Truth is like a river it flows quickly and it erodes the rocks,
And if you aren’t careful you will crack your skull,
There is nothing more hurtful than the truth,
Especially when it comes from the mouth of those you love.
When I find I have trouble sleeping I dream of the ocean,
Because one day I suspect my body will be floating in it,
After all what is death, but a long sleep,
And soon I will be swimming in eternity.
People make it sound like your life is wasting away,
And I believe sometimes they are right,
But with my very own lonely oceanic mindset,
Maybe one day I’ll find a better reason to live.
This post may make me lose followers…but whatever. I’m going to come out and say it, I HATE JOHN GREEN! He’s a bad writer. Not just bad, but terrible. I felt nothing when I read The Fault in Our Stars. In fact I felt cold. Looking for Alaska wasn’t as much of a washed up poor excuse for a book as TFIOS, but it also pretty much sucked.
And you can’t say I’m a bad reader. This is coming from me. A girl who reads classics. I have read all the Jane Austen books, Jane Eyre, Villette, The Tennent of Wildfell Hall, Far From the Madding Crowd, and others.
For heavens sake I even love poetry! I read ee cummings, John Keats, Edgar Allen Poe, and more.
And I also like modern books too. Growing up I read A Series of Unfortunate Events, and I love Harry Potter.
John Green is just a terrible writer and not worth anyone’s time.
Oh my gosh
Series 3 of Sherlock was so amazing! I’m not sure my body can take the long wait after this!
And a happy new year!
2013 really did a lot for me. It brought me to my knees at my worst and somehow managed to get me to my best. I’ve made mistakes this year, and I’ve done things that you couldn’t pay me to change.
I met my best friend, I nearly died, I broke, and I was truly awesome.
I’ve learned the truth about humans this year. That one minute you can feel like the world hates you and that there’s no point in living, and if you feel like that right now, let me tell you, it’s not true.
You have to find a reason to live. And that’s what life’s really about. It’s about those stupid little things, and then the big things that change you.
So in the end…I must thank you, 2013! For changing me. And making me understand so much more.
