yes, is this. we have this in common. i too am glad that i am happy. i am not afraid. i proceed without fear. i am doing what needs to be done. day after day i live and breathe. this is a universe i inhabit. it is so interesting to want to disagree, and then realize that we are in agreement. it is climactic in a different way that is not like surfing a huge wave. it is a different brand of adrenaline.
we have in common the admiration that i can be well and that i am loved. i could fight with you and say that no, i am not happy, that no, i need more. but i do not need more. i have everything. my future selves, i am saying to you that i remember feeling simple tonight. i can wear simple clothes and admire wearing hoodies while wearing gloves. and sneakers. and comfort that is so stylish and so functional. i like to be a ninja and to plan my ambition. i like to have surges where i am in the tunnel. but i don’t need you to watch me or to think of me. i feel simple and i am not planning ninjas right now. i am just remembering this great weekend i just had, and how i do not need to have friends and do not need to try so hard to feel young.
i am young. i am well. thank you for showing me. it is not what you meant because even you would not say this just to be generous. but in this way you have shown me what i have. and i cannot protest. because you are right, and this much we have in common.
