/ The Reckless and the Brave /

by - 2:20 PM

Long live the reckless and the brave!
I don't think I wanna be saved
My song has not been sung
So long live us!

Looking out at a town called Suburbia,

Everybody's just fighting to fit in
Little rats, running mazes, having babies
It's a vicious little world 

That we live in.

Looking back at a life on the other side

I realize that I didn't fit in
Didn't hate it but I didn't quite relate it 

To my precious little world.

So long live the reckless and the brave
I don't think I wanna be saved
My song has not been sung

And long live the fast times
So come what may
I don't think I'll ever be saved
Our song has not been sung
Long live us!

Breaking out of a town called Suburbia

I remember everybody always saying 
"Little brat, must be crazy, never make it in our vicious little world."

Still I'm leaving.

Got a van, got a chance, got my dignity

Got a dream, got a spark, got somewhere to be.
Take a breath, say goodbye to their precious little world.

And say goodbye to me.

So long live the reckless and the brave
I don't think I wanna be saved
My song has not been sung

And long live the fast times
So come what may
I don't think I'll ever be saved
Our song has not been sung

Long live us.

  1. I love this so much okay.


  2. hello can I curl up in a corner of your blog like its a room and be silent and sad for no reason but read all your work like its a low voice speaking quietly quietly quietly and the words will fill up my ears and eyes to make me a solid being

    Revolutions burn in your heart. Such strong desire for things to be finally right. And people who belive in the same thing are screaming beside you. You feel like an animal. Ready to stampede. Kick up some dust and trample the earth, scar history like a landscape.
    One loud resounding song.

    My brain is functioning weirdly today.

    1. What even was that comment.
      Apparently I am an amateur poet when I'm tired. I had been hiding from my cousins and failing at homework when I wrote that.
      But from what I can tell, I was trying to make insightful remarks about revolutions, but that's not what the song was about. It was still wanting to change things, but not on such a large scale as a revolution.
      But anyway, I like the my song has not been sung bit.

      Sad, tired Gwen is an interesting person indeed. It seems I didn't feel like engaging my brain enough to speak like a normal person. But how on earth is that roundabout garbage up there easier? What even.
      I suppose it's not sadness. I wasn't sad. It's more of a detached thing, I can watch myself and my life from a vantage point in space. Oh look. My homework is going badly. Oh look. Small relatives are screaming. Wow I'm a tiny ant on the earth and not even a speck of dust in space. And your parents are asking you if you feel well. And you don't. And no, you don't need an Advil, cause it's not the sort of unwell that can be solved with an Advil.

      OH LOOK. I'm doing the thing again.
      I should go to bed. Have a nice [whatever period of time you're in right now] my dear.

    2. A very wonderful bit of poetry.
      You are always welcome to curl up wherever you want on my blog, darling. The gates to the other side of reality are always open for you.
      Cousins can be literally so annoying. Like I had a bunch at my house just today and yesterday and we had a gift exchange and they all got me makeup and beauty products because "ur in high school now so you have to wear makeup!!!1!!1" and I barely escaped one of them trying to apply the evil substance to my face.
      Evidently they do not understand the concept that all girls (esp. me) do not like makeup and jewelry and beauty stuff. Or that they don't have to.
      I like that bit too.
      I thought they were rather insightful.
      If it's any consolation (which it's probably not), it's almost 11 pm where I live and I have yet to study for pt. 1 of my German final tomorrow, which, btw, makes up 20% of my grade.
      I hate that sort of unwell. It's the hardest to fix - but I find fuzzy blankets and warm mugs of tea or hot chocolate often help.

  3. Oops! Nope! Not going to bed!
    Have I told you my thoughts about time yet?
    Time is really weird. We don't really need it. At least, time would not exist if nothing changed.
    If people and cars and the wind froze, if everything in the universe stopped spinning, if cells stopped splitting, IF EVERYTHING HELD ABSOLUTELY STILL, then there would be no time. There would be no way to tell how long we had stopped, because there would be no external, unchanged thing to show us.

    It's like how if everything in the universe was constantly expanding, we would have no way to tell, because EVERYTHING is expanding, and everything is relative.

    Everything is relative.

    Of course, if everything stopped moving like I said, then we would all die, and you would be able to tell. There would be no light, because light waves are frozen before they hit your eyes. Everything would be indescribably cold, because molecules stopped moving around and making friction. Without electrical signals from our brains or a heartbeat at all, we would die and quickly desintigrate (and also be very cold).

    So movement is very important.

    1. Time has always befuddled me and freaked me out a bit tbh.
      Relative - yes, that is true.
      V. important.


Thank you for your comment :) they make my day. Feedback is always welcome.
