I heard somewhere once; "survival is a roast you have to keep on carving and carving". When I was younger I used to move my chair in front of my bedroom window before I went to bed so that if someone tried to break in, they would trip and fall and that would give me enough time to go and alert my family. I think William Yeats is lucky to have the last name Yeats, and I think "He Wishes for the Cloth of Heaven" is one of his best poems. I have a picture from when I was eight and my hair was put in curlers and I was so excited because my hair was straight as a pin when I was young. Now, I don't need curlers. I used to watch the actors and actresses on the tv screens or see their pictures in magazines and think that they were so beautiful or so handsome and so lucky. I used to think in terms of I wish I looked like that and I wish I could do that. I thought they must be some of the happiest people on earth to get to do their passions, the things they love, and be beautiful or handsome and have everyone look up to them. Now I feel sorry for them because in most cases, this isn't the truth. Because a lot of them starve themselves because they don't think their beautiful. And people criticize them and judge them. And they don't feel happy and they may even be losing their passion. I feel sad for them and sad because I thought I wanted to be them but I don't. And people don't always have the life that the tv screen makes it look like they have. I really wish I could let them all know that they are worth something though and their life matters and they're beautiful. I feel happy for the ones who really do have a happy and confident life not ruined by the negative people in the world. This may seem weird but sometimes we are going to need a bigger boat. I think the guy from Jaws was right. Also, life isn't paved on streets of concrete. For some reason the Peter Pan quote, the one that goes like this; "You know that place between sleep and awake? The place where you can still remember dreaming? That's where I will aways love you. That's where I will be waiting", it makes my heart hurt sometimes. But it's a beautiful quote. I've always loved the rain. But back then I used to jump in the puddles instead of step over them.
