Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday; graduating high school, saying goodbye. That feeling that you get at 17 or 18 that no one in the history of the world has ever been this close, has ever loved as fiercely or laughed as hard or cared as much. Sometimes it feels like it was yesterday. Sometimes, it feels like someone else’s memory.
T h i s i s w h o I a m .This is how I am. And 95 percent of the time there isn’t a moral or a victory or a silver lining. Take it or leave it. If you leave it then you’ll miss that other 5 percent. Your mistake.
So you’re probably looking at this and making fun of my outfit, right? Anyway here’s all you really need to know about today; if… you’re fat, dumb, sexual and a guy, you’re OK. If you’re a girl, not so much. Please tell me that’s changed in the future. & somebody please tell me you’ve got love figured out, because I got news for you; it’s pretty darn messy right now. But I guess it has always been that way. Wanting to be loved, to find somebody that makes your heart ache in a good way… feel understood. So… if you’re robots, or aliens, or something and you’re watching this right now and that feeling no longer exists; well,… you missed it…and I feel sorry for you. ‘Cuz as far as I can tell, that’s what it’s all about. And that’s what I know it should be about.
“Love is not love which alters, when it alteration finds. When life gets hard, when things change true love remains the same. I look at Nathan and Haley, and somehow I feel safer. I don’t know if I can explain that but, they give me hope. And I’m afraid to say it out loud because maybe if life finds out it’ll try to beat it out of them, and that would be a shame. Because we all could use a little hope sometimes, you know? That feeling that everything is going to be okay and that there’s going to be someone there to help make sure of that. So here’s to Nathan and Haley, here’s to hope, and here’s to a love that will not alter.”
