white is supposed to be a symbol of cleanliness, fresh starts and hope
we are all yearning for a fresh start
that's why we celebrate the new year, start new trends, diets, gym memberships
because we’re trying to be something else
we’re trying to disguise the fact that we aren’t perfect
and there is nothing inherently wrong with trying to be perfect
there is an honour in trying to be someone who is admirable, honourable, kind, generous
but its so hard to change things that are ingrained into us, to be the better person, to take the higher ground
it's so easy to succumb to greed and selfishness
because deep down we’re flawed
so deeply deeply flawed
full of needs, wants, cravings, lust
some people are more at home with this notion and embrace it
whilst there are others who attempt to change how they act, because they want to be white again, they want to be perfect, clean, new
but its so hard to keep trying
it depends who you're around
they say that the five people closest to you impact who you are, how you act, how you think
but they forget to mention that we also affect ourselves, that its not just the external factors that impact our lives.
because at the end of the day, we are alone with our thoughts and if we don’t try, what happens.
who do you become if you let your needs and wants take over?
