quote about life

nobody can save you but
yourself
and you’re worth saving.
it’s a war not easily won
but if anything is worth winning then
this is it.

think about it.
think about saving your self.

Charles Bukowski, “Nobody But You”

I need to carve this in my heart. Believe it with urgency. 

I don’t understand anything technical about music at all. Why you can’t put these sounds together with those sounds. I only know what sounds good to us. I write poems for myself and I write poetry that gets torn apart and becomes songs. I’m still the guy sitting in his room at 3:00am playing the guitar and writing stuff because there’s nothing else to do and no one to say it to. I think people can feel that, that we aren’t much different than them. And we’re not.
