“I now choose to release all anger, sorrow, frustration and emotional pain that have been building up within me. I open my heart to love and invite happiness, health and positive energies into my life. I am safe.”
it just struck me, after listening to it again for the n-th time, how much i love young forever. i’m really close to saying that it is probably my favorite song of bangtan or maybe i’m just having these feelings tonight but nevertheless this song is really beautifully put together.
all you need is there. namjoon’s whispery rap-vocals; yoongi’s melodic rap talking and oh my god that goosebump-worthy shouting followed by hoseok’s expressive voice and a really strong ending rap; taehyung’s and seokjin’s perfectly arranged vocals that thankfully go on for more than one line; jungkook’s strong main vocals; jimin’s high silvery voice and the very end with a beautiful harmony of their voices all together become something so inspiring and heartwarming that i want to look up to the sky and sway my head from side to side, preferably with the accompaniment of the wind.
it also speaks to someone like me, because i do want to stay young forever and i am scared of the future and i do get discouraged more than i want to, more by myself than by others, too. you don’t really need to learn all the lyrics because those two english lines are just enough to wake something up inside.
and then you realize that 2 minutes and 51 seconds of that is not enough so you go through it again, and again, and again..
There is an inner beauty about a person who believes in him or herself, who knows that they are capable of anything that they put their mind to. There is beauty in the strength and determination of a person who follows her own path; who is not thrown off by obstacles along the way. There is beauty about a person whose confidence comes from experiences; a person who knows they can fall, pick him or herself up, and carry on … There’s beauty in that!
Don’t believe yourself mainly when you are using the voice against yourself. The voice can make you afraid to be alive, to express who you really are. It can stop you from doing what you really want to do with your life. That voice has been in control of your head for so many years, and, no, that voice will not give up just because you want it to leave you alone. But at least you can challenge that voice by not believing what it’s telling you. That’s why I say, ‘don’t believe yourself.’
okay but to me personally yoongi’s mixtape won’t be just evidence of his musical journey and improvement, won’t only be his blood and sweat put into a sequence of beats and kicks.. i am mostly excited about the personality he will put into them and the stories he will tell. i guess for me it’s the most unique thing about his music and to be honest i am seriously concerned about me not being able to handle such a burst of inspiration the mixtape will give, can we form a circle of support please
