Let’s be independent, she said.
I said ok and jumped right in.
We cannot let other people define our happiness.
We must travel, see places, see people, eat shit, and drink crap.
We cannot let one part of our life to define us in anyway.
We shouldn’t change to accommodate love.
Yes, let’s do that. Let’s do that first.
Let’s not fall in love at all this year.
Everytime it happens it takes a big chunk from me.
Let’s make love and not love
Let’s respect people and not demand things from them
Let’s teach ourselves to love us.
I said ok, like I say ok to everything.
Let’s learn how to swim and drive and to eat with chopsticks
Let’s learn a language and write shit poetry in that language
Let’s write without going crazy about who reads it and what they may think
Let’s give ourselves to freedom and learning
Let’s read more and let’s live more
Let’s just breathe, for a change.
