So Life is just that.
We all lose ourselves growing up.
Find ourselves when we least expect it.
Face testing experiences and get through.
Better or Worse.
Liking to think for the better.
Learn from a bad decision - decisions.
Become stronger from experiences.
Life throws Crazy Shit.
We All have Stories.
Some we can share, Some that we wont.
These experiences are Strengths, Not weaknesses.
Choose Courage, Not Fear. Death is Inevitable, the rest is Choice.©
My Story in short;
"One Testing Experience Too Many, A Life Of Endless Lives And A Yellow Curtain Blind." - Marcia Anita Hobbs
Life – A dreamy Nightmare that Grips us by the Throat as we enter this Treacherous World and begins to Squeeze as we struggle to drink from the bosom that Feeds us into Destruction. Dying from Birth we tread through Life’s Bullshit to the Inevitable End of Our Existence. Knowing This, we need Not Fear what life has in store. We need Not Punish Ourselves and become a Shadow to society. 'Fear Is The Root Of All Weakness®'. A Weakness that we should Not bow Down to, as we are Inevitably headed Towards what we will Lose at the end of our Existence – Life. Like a 'Barbwire Noose®' the Reality of our world grips us slowly Bleeding us to our Death with No Remorse. We do Not need to endure more pain in the face of Fear. Embrace Life as it sucks your Vital Soul into the Nothingness of Conformation. Do Not Conform as society demands. Live Life to experience your Mind, your Body, your Souls desire and Fuck the World's Bias opinion. Do Not be Sucked into the Oblivion. Do Not Conform. Alone We Stand Hand In Hand, Without Fear.©
