"Random Thoughts"

Life is a whirlwind of emotions,
That you have to soak up at random intervals;
Just get wet and squishy with happiness
Occasionally to reinvigorate your soul.

You just have to break away from it all and breathe.
Do whatever it takes to keep your life in focus:
Write, run, listen to music, read, fuck, whatever.
So long as you feel alive.

Life is tough, but the good usually outweighs the bad.
If you donít believe me, just think about the last major crisis you had.
Now try to remember three crises back. Now five. Now ten.
You see, all we have to do is punch through,
And then wait for the cold Gatoraid at the end of the race,
And as you gulp down that cool flavor, the pain just goes away.

I donít know why Iím telling you all of this.
I guess I just hope that maybe one day, after Iím gone,
My thoughts and words will help someone out.
Thatís really what itís all about:
making life just a little easier for everyone you possibly can.
