**"Reader's Discretion Is Advised"**
Hard times come and go,
but what would life be if there were no ups and downs,
One would never seize the moment.
Smile,while you can,
Cry if you can't,
Coz no one said its not okay to cry.
Just when you thought, I don't think its going to get any more worst,
Its actually gets worst,
But, I mean common,
God wouldn't put you thru it if he din't think you were strong enough to handle.
I know some things maybe hard to swallow,
But Im not going to sit here and watch you crumble,
'' its not wrong to be weak and to need help''.
Beautiful - Eminem
One tough act to follow
I'll be one tough act to follow
Here today, gone tomorrow
But you'd have to walk a thousand miles
In my shoes, just to see
What it's like, to be me
I'll be you, let's trade shoes
Just to see what it'd be like to
Feel your pain, you feel mine
Go inside each other's minds
Just to see what we find
Look at shit through each other's eyes
But don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful, oh
They can all get fucked.
Just stay true to you
So don't let 'em say you ain't beautiful
Oh, they can all get fucked.
Just stay true to you
For all those who question why we(me+brother) would prioritize friends over family, here's why.This is a part of one of the many conversations.
''frends were all we had when we were growing up
we din hv parents who ensured we would be somebody some day
we had friends who always were there for us..and thats all we have now
when they abandone us''
But I must say, 7-8/2/2012 has been the best and the worst night of my life by far. The few who knew what happened stayed with me thru the night and listened to me cry. And even the one's who never knew what happened sent me songs and inspirational text messages and videos on youtube. AMAZING. I am blown away.It is almost impossible for me to feel down when there's so many out there who have my back.
The best yet was Nina.
Me: Nina,..I love you.
Nina: What happened??
Me: Nting..its okay..its gona be alright.
Nina: Shut up and tell me will you?
Me: Nah..sokay..it'll be okay..
Nina: Sure, im nobody right..
Me: laaaa, il be okay..just thought you shud noe i love you.
Nina: well then jus so u noe ure the closest frend i have now n dat i always got ur back..keeping things to yourself doesnt help,n i noe dat.but sokay..u tc ok.
Absolutely blown away by the number of people who check in on me..even those i have not kept in touch with for some time..amazing number of texts and chats and tweets and oovoo ..ur awesome..and I love you.
This night/morning has also thought me that even during your darkest hours, there will be selfish people who will prioritize themselves and their intentions/motives/to-do-list over you.But its okay, i've learnt who my real friends are and who isn't.
PS: Sending a huge ass amount of love to the little-est family member - LILIAN - who has literally been here with me and gah! thank you women..no words to express the amount of gratitude..mwah!mwah!
