|My words are too pretentious and my thoughts too philosophical. I've ignored the fact that simplicity isn't an easy thing. All of us are so afraid of being so, we over compensate by filling our mouths with mindless babble that's deemed 'intelligent.' It's not easy to be simple, that's a fact. I always have to prove myself, more or less attest to attest to my intelligence. What if it's the complete opposite? Simplicity is envious to scholars.|
Today I recieved a compliment about how i word myself; my vocabulary eclectic, my syllables precise, and my sentances standout. I laugh it off with a mere grin and shrug of the shoulders. If I have the slightest inkling of a positive comment, my ego shoots through the roof and gravity flings it back down in 60 seconds.
"I'd read your book if you wrote one", she said nonchalantly, as if I'm an exception to the aspiring writer's unwritten rulebook. My best friend, negativity, seeped through, reassuring my shit low self-esteem that the book would collect dust and have a bookmark on the second page that will never be pulled out.
I've always wanted to write a book, a life goal per say. Having the luxury of being 17, I have a plethora of cliches and stereotypes that void me of being taken seriously. I might not have experienced a lot, been in a war, have a friend die in a hideous car wreck, or seen much of the world. But I can offer my insight and confusion, I'll assume that valid and reader-worthy.
