"When someone tells you that you are young, and that your opinions are invalid, remind them that you are wiser than your years. Remind them that if you were a war, fifteen years would be a long time fighting. That if you counted each candle you’d ever blown out, you could set the world to flames. Remind them that you’ve grown, and arrogance is in everyone, no matter their age. Remind them that children are short, not stupid. Remind them that they have lived longer yes, but they have not lived as you have. They have seen the same sky, but not the same way. Remind them that yes, in the scheme of things, you are only a spec in the world. But remind them also that in this moment, this second, you are as old as you’ve ever been."
“If I Were A War”
don’t waste your time on me
you’re already the voice inside my head
1/4 of me wants to be a cute mod girl and listen to the beatles and then 1/4 of me wants to be a dirty hippie dancing at a grateful dead concert and 1/4 of me wants to be a fabulous yet trashy glam rock girl and wear red lipstick and hang out with david bowie and 1/4 of me wants to be a bad ass mother fucker and wear leather jackets and fuck iggy pop in the filthy bathrooms at the CBGB club
