déjà vu (/lazy people)

in order to live with love in this world

you have to grip your fragile ego by its shoulders

and ask it if it’s ready to slip away for a while.

parting with it is difficult.

It will moan until thick streams of money pour out of its open throat.

It will beg until you’re choked by the social embarrassment of locking it out.

It will remind you that the world is about you

it’s all about you

right?

parting with it is difficult.

It’s taking me years. I still struggle.

So when you ask me to show you how,

I hesitate because-

this should be on you.
