Pour.



I don't know you, but you have inspired me. We don't have much in common except our families are friends. You write, think and compose so nicely. Your views on life are great and smart. You're tired of money and the fact that it has driven you into a hole. This isn't going to ruin you.

You're going to do what makes you happy.
You don't care if you have to pay large amounts of money for college.
If you're happy, it's all that matters.
If you're going to have to live a life of a starving artist and live off of ramen noodles, that won't matter.
As long as you're happy.

It's so easy for you to pour.
Pour your thoughts, without the fear of being judged.
You aren't afraid of the potential problems it may bring.
Why can't I be like you?
Why can't I possess those qualities?
I'm afraid of pouring.

Spilling what I've got to say.
I feel confined to this journal. I want to pour, pour out what I have to say.
"STOP BEING SO COLD!" I want to shout.
But, I can't.
I'm confined.
"DON'T BE AFRAID OF ME! I'M NOT GOING TO HURT!"
You inspire me, why can't I think like you?
I want to pour it all out.
I cannot confine in anything.
Water comes out, making you feel great.

"SHUT UP, YOU'RE A FAG!"
I want to pour that out.
I cannot reveal anything.

FUCK YOU!
Glass is full, confined, sheltered.
"SHUT UP!", my head tells me.
"Do what maybe right!"
No, no, no. I want to pour.

I want to model myself after you.
Confidant in what I have to say.
I want to realize what you already have, nothing can stop you.
I want.
Whether it comes out as a shout, a rainstorm or a bunch of words,
Let it pour.
I will let you be my mentor and role model.
You will teach me on how I can..

POUR!
