“If you cut yourself, if you hate yourself, if you eat, if you don’t eat, if your parents split up, if your parents hit you, if your mom tells you you’re a piece of trash, if you got in a car crash and half your face is gone — Wake up in the morning and give yourself a shot. Do it. Not for music, not for any reason other than the fact that you are alive and you were given the grace to wake up another day. So do it, man. Just freaking get out there and try.”
open your eyes and observe everything. open your ears and listen to everyone. at night, listen to the silence. open your heart and leave it open. open your mind and think. then open your mouth and say what you will. - EJM.
