Dear sweet, stupid Tyler from one second, one minute, one hour, one day, one week, one month, one year, 5 years, 10 years, 15 years ago... You are stupid and naive and chances are everything you think you know is a lie or some kind of misconception, or just wrong. You will continue to live blindly for the rest of your life, only knowing half truths about everyone else, and everything else around you, and even about yourself, until the end, when you'll ask yourself, was it really worth it? All that struggle. All that strife. All that bullshit. All that pain, sorrow, torment, turmoil and every other negative adjective, did it make your life worth living? For those minuscule glimmers of hope, and happiness and joy and love... was it worth the avalanche of suck?
You'll never know.
Thank you human condition. No really, thank you.
Guess you gotta just keep on fighting and see.
And maybe, just maybe, you might find someone to join your cause. Enlist in your revolution, and it might just snowball exponentially, until enough people start caring to make a difference in one person, 5 people, 10 people 100 people, 1000 people, even a million people. Until the world has shaped itself into something presentable, something to be proud of, something to live for even. Something that everyone can enjoy equally, for its majesty, its beauty, its serenity, its justice, its equality, its perfection.
But maybe not.
