our society is built on the binary of proper lines.

spotless, picturesque, sanitary lives trailing cycle upon cycle of symmetry.

yet we function better without framed order.
we have wanderlust built into our core; we bleed out the seasons when it suits us.
our lives are made of tire treds feeding the clouded sunset, skies pouring violently over
ravenous hearts seeking catharsis.

the nyctophiliac, the heliophiliac.
the nemophilist, the pluviophile.

if we breathed in your blank normalcy, we'd crumble and die.
Whilst "learning" in math today, I wrote this,  because I was about to cry. 
Most of you know I'm depressed, and yea, I should get over it, or so my step father says.
But the truth is, life fucking sucks, and there's no way you can tell the cake from the mud.
If you're about to heave your inside out all over your desk, you should have the ability to walk and take a break from the day to day pointlessness of school.
And work.  And life, for that matter.  But no.  "Just cheer up" is all they'll probably give you. 
So yea.  Learning about domain and range will be a HUGE fucking help to me in the future.
No, fuck that bullshit.  Your inner thoughts are far more valuable than anything they teach you in this shitty public school system.

This is incredibly moving. I'm in love with the imagery and it's just so powerful.
Depression isn't something you can just "get over". Don't listen to your step father, he obviously doesn't have a clue about it.
I'm sorry that things are hard for you, and I agree that the system is, for want of a better word, bullshit. But I guess all we can do is keep moving and try to break free from the oppression of pointless convention. It gets god damn suffocating sometimes.

This is rather brilliant!
Yes, quit profound from someone still in school :D

I'm at uni at the moment studying music as my goal is to be a lyricist and seeing pieces like this remind me that I have to stay on my game to compete with 'real talent' such as that you display here x

Yeah. Life does suck sometimes. I'm about to be 31 years old and I am currently unemployed living with my son and younger sister in my mother's house. When I was in school I knew I would be married with my own home by this time. Things don't always go to plan, but you wake up everyday and keep moving because if you don't you will die. You move with the knowledge that the bad days don't last forever. One day I'll have a decent job again and you will graduate from school with enough "pointless" education to get you a decent job as well.
