Just Thinking


I sometimes feel happy that this all will end in the future.
I know I probably shouldn't say that but,
It puts me at ease.

Nothing lasts forever.
Not even the greatest artists and thinkers are remembered after a little while.
Not even Jesus himself.

What will I be remembered as?
What will people think of me?
Will I be remembered at all?

At least I have something to look forward to.
All my schooling tells my so.
All my schooling does is condemn me.

Keeping calm seems like a challenge now.
Keep walking in the straight path, you better not step out.
Kids can be real pushy.

life gets hard if you feel like its just you.
Let people in.
Let life break you down only to build you right back up again.

Crazy is courageous.
Crazy keeps us entertained.
Can I just let go?

Whatever happens to me, I'll never be a slave.
Work hard and relax harder.
Work until you're in the ground.

Maybe I already am a slave.
Maybe my anxiety makes me a slave, or my need for acceptance.
My life is too good, yet I feel empty.

Fake is the world I live in.
Football didn't work out for me.
Football showed me the evil ways of the elite.

The girl? The girl didn't want anything to do with me.
The girl? The girl didn't even want to be friends.
That sounds right.

Friends? Tell me if you see many.
Freak? I'm starting to feel that way.
Freaks, I'm the only normal one.

Get out of your emotions, cry baby.
Get a life.
Give it to me harder.

Why can't I just be like the rest of them?
What do I have to do?
What did I do in my past life to deserve this.

I guess it's alright.
I actually know that its gonna be great.
Its my time. I have waited. Its your time too.

    "What will I be remembered as?
    What will people think of me?
    Will I be remembered at all?"

    Why it matters? Life is so short, simply live it with someone you love or live it alone, what ever way that you pleased.

    It seems you are overwhelmed by your thoughts.

    Well expressed.

      Chill out and enjoy whatever your life brings to you.

      Well written, Tomo!
      As for the subject, I do not know you, but from what you are saying, you seem to be torn between throwing the towel and 'man, this life is great!'. What is the right thing to do? Only you know the answer to that. As an old guy who has been around the block a few times, I would suggest not to worry too much. Don't overthink. Just do. If 'the girl' is not interested, there are many more girls. Most people do not have more than two or maybe three really really good friends over a lifetime.
      You seem to like writing, and you are good at it, so continue to write. I for one would like to read more from you.
