the surface project (53)

What are you supposed to be doing right now?

dear sickness,
you are not my friend.
and even if you were,
i would not invite you to stay
for three weeks at a time
every. other. day
in the middle of what is supposed to be
track season.
go away sickness.
i hate you.

the surface project (63)

Do you believe there's good in everybody?

i don't want to talk to you about religion
because no matter what you say
you're right

i've got so much faith in the soul of mankind
that the grace of a god can get lost
in translation

don't lose sight of who you are, you know?
we're the last things we have to hold on to
by now

this paper's full of made-up soul

if i'm feeling for real
and i'm living it out
and i'm loving the way
that i'm living it out
who needs all the ways
that i'm living it out
on the paper
that's not even living?
