“Always be a first rate-version of yourself and not a second-rate version of someone else.” Judy Garland

Better The Full Flavoured Precarity

Life is essentially
taking off other people's faces
and learning to live what is behind
our own, accepting that which arises
from within, rather than seeking 
external stimulus as validation like a
mantle one puts on when seeking
affirmation, or projecting convenient
lies of success for a kiss, complete
fakery in exchange for smooth living
that tastes like chalk, better the full
flavoured life even when a little precarity
lurks at its edges.
