i’ll see some old pictures of past loves or jobs or cars or situations
and i’ll say i wonder if i shoulda put up with their bs a little longer
i wonder if i shoulda done that one thing different
if only i had just not have said a word
what if you had just said fine.
and then i think of the other times, after that when i did
to be someone other than me.
if you’re bowling and the ball is veering to the left, you set up a little to the right
and sometimes if everyones not happy and smiling
you change it up a bit and see what happens.
what has happened is life has happened, the way its supposed to be
and the reason we are who we are is we
changed it up a little, naturally, due to the circumstances where we came from.
it’s crazy to call an audible for the sole reason of acceptance.
the purpose of the game is to play the game, not to be loved.
only god loves you. and your mom.
everything else is: well, he wont kill me or
damn she might kill me one day.
i take it all back: play the game the way you got to the game
if youre constantly calling audibles, fine. but figure out why.
do you really know the right move at the last second or are you just panicking.
odds are i made the right moves.
odds are you will too.
floor it and enjoy the ride.
