you are amazing, always remember that! Everyone’s writing is unique, just like we all are;) Tip: overthinking is killer in writing, write first edit later, don’t take breaks to think about grammar or little issues

FREE WRITING

2
my brother is free, fun, and crazy
so much so that I often wonder
HOW
DO
YOU
SHARE THE SAME DNA AS ME
I can be free, I love to be free but
it's
hard sometimes
for me to escape my expectations
ok
responsible
hardworking
but for him...
he always seems like he's on vacation
even during a pandemic he is
calm, cool, collected
while I worry and binge Netflix
I am analytical, thoughtful, stubborn
but I could learn alot from the kid who laughs all the time
and smiles
and tells jokes
and acts like he is the coolest person ever
because maybe he is
maybe letting yourself go every now and then and thinking "today's the perfect day for an adventure" is smart
it's smart because you only live once
you only get a certain amount of laughing until you can't breathe's, of milkshakes on a monday, of videogames until dawn, of having fun
until it's over
so if you're like me
if you like to think and think and think
maybe just try not
it will remind you that you can always step out of yourself and into someone else
you don't have to always be predictable
predictable isn't fun
but weird, random?
that's when you start to let go
and breathe

    One more thing (sorry that I’m spamming you with comments, I can delete some of them if you want me to): It does have a slight trigger warning, so if that’s an issue, I could send in a different piece. Just let me know.
