things life is too short for:
- hating yourself
- pretending to laugh at “jokes” that are actually just bigoted statements
- not singing along to your favorite songs
- waiting hours to text someone back just to look cool
- bad coffee
- bad books
- mean people
- body shaming
- letting other people dictate your life

defining-a-life:

This place was never the same again
After you came and went
How can you say you meant anything different
To anyone standing alone 
On the street with a cigarette
On the first night we met

Look to the past
And remember and smile.
And maybe tonight
I can breathe for awhile.
I’m not in the scene
I think I’m fallin’ asleep
But then all that it means is 
I’ll always be dreaming of you.

Fate fell short this time
