As i argue/holler/grow defiant of my living, my friends lose their patience over my existential angst. They say, Relax! the burden of the world is not on your shoulders,
I deconstruct, destruct, lose sleep relentlessly.

But almost always remember:

"To love. To be loved. To never forget your own insignificance. To never get used to the unspeakable violence and the vulgar disparity of life around you. To seek joy in the saddest places. To pursue beauty to its lair. To never simplify what is complicated or complicate what is simple. To respect strength, never power. Above all, to watch. To try and understand. To never look away. And never, never, to forget." - Arundhati Roy

I look at pain and hopelessness as a form of responibility owed to the universe of which you are now and always will be god, you have a responsibility to your godhood and to the multitude that are the many small pieces of even the briefest moments of your failures to resurect your own heart or temper a failure; to be who they are, to hear their prayers, to deny them nothing. emotion.
