My feelings are all skewed. I can’t tell if it’s the alcohol that’s got me feeling different or the act of growing up. But now, more than ever, I want to be in love. I’ve regressed to the feelings I once had during a time where the world felt more open and accepting.
That’s the thing about youth and innocence..
Our vision of the world is skewed when we not only witness the pain inflicted on people by others but we also fear feelings of the same. The truth is that my feelings were skewed a long time ago and I’m only just now realizing that I must revisit the openness of my youth.
Unfortunately, not everyone is as open as me and everytime I open up is another risk I’ll have to take. The real problem is that I want too much. Although they are quite similar, my wants outweigh my needs and the ones I want don’t always seem to want the same; even if they say they do.
But life keeps going and the world keeps spinning and another will come along and lay the night away with me as the great world spins us around and around. Until then I’ll spend my nights alone and project my wants into beautiful dreams…
Kanye West must have great knowledge of the revolutionary history of Prague. Prague has been the center of many historical changes in Central Europe and the history is fluid with public uprising. I learned the story of a young man named Jan Palach who burned himself alive during a political protest against communism. The young man is still remembered to this day with streets, stores, restuarants, hotels, and many other establishments all bearing some variation of his name. He is also symbolized at the end of the "No Church in the Wild" music video. My people, it is a must see!
