"I am starting to love the willful ignorance of New Yorkers, the ability to look at the epic and beautiful and quickly put it into context. It's a skill that comes from the skyline; we see something that magnificent every day and somehow go on living. A back-drop like that will dominate you unless you earn to become a part of it, and that's what New Yorkers do. Become towers." -Rachel Syme 🏙🗽🌫💁🏻♂️🙌🏻
I'm not saying that I'm suicidal
It's not that I'm trying to kill myself
Or that I plan on it anytime soon.
I'm just saying that if I were in
A life threatening situation,
I wouldn't necessarily try to get out of it.
For example, if you held a gun to my head
I wouldn't get out of the way
Or even beg you not to shoot,
Hell, I probably wouldn't bat an eyelash.
I'd simply say “go for it”
And let you pull the damn trigger.
But I'm not actively looking for ways to kill myself.
I'm not suicidal
But if I were in a life threatening situation
I wouldn't turn and run,
I would stare death down
with an expressionless face.
An unreadable grin and
A hint of relief in my eye.
I'm not trying to die
But if I were put in a life or death situation,
I wouldn't chose life.
I'm not suicidal.
I'm just not afraid of death.
Thank you for the support, everyone. I really appreciate it.
