Before I start my jaded rant, I want you to keep in mind this is only my opinion, and it might not work for you.
You define your life experience.
That being said...
I'm afraid I have some bad news for you.
There are so few guaranties in life. Death being perhaps the biggest. The one unifying, and universal experience.
And it's coming... One second at a time.
Another being ASSHOLES, and they are everywhere. They come in all colors, shapes, and sizes. Its an unavoidable side-effect of the human condition.
And its never gonna change. (At least not in our lifetime)
It doesn't matter who you are, how hard you work, how honest you are, how old you get, how much you suffer, or what your shell looks like.
There will ALWAYS be some Mother-Fucker there to give you the Stink-Eye.
But do yourself a favor, and don't let those bitches live rent free in your head.
And NEVER let them fool you into believing that words like 'Black', 'White', or even 'Goth' are what defines you....
You are... We ALL are... Much more than that!
So your mission (Should you choose to accept it) Is...
Be true to yourself, And own that shit.
Be exactly who the fuck YOU are, And make it look good.
Oh... And by the way... Welcome to the forum.
Its always nice to meet another musician.
