I have a strange fear of Janelle Monae, I dont know why or when i developed it, but its there,
(i have the same problem with Neyo, John Legend, Chrissette Michelle and Jay Electronica ..its a trust thing, i suppose i just don't ever feel like i can trust their faces *shrug*)
whilst the others have failed to convince me to put my irrational fears of them aside, i think miss Monae has won me over!
i first heard this over on Alicia's wonder-emporium of a blog where she posted the video and a lovely abstract by The Culture Cynic herself Chomy
so you think i'm alone?
but being alone's the only way to be
when you step outside
you spend life fighting for your sanity
i kinda cried on the third listen because i appreciate the sentiment and wish my younger self could have been privy to it, because like many others i was once a follower..
There are always going to be people who coerce you into their way of thinking, and you're so busy not knowing yourself that their gripes become your gripes and their wishes become your wishes..
its easy to live life under false oppressions, battling for things you don't support and cant even identify..
if you wanna retain your sanity pause the pointless battles, retreat into your own submarine and proceed to resolve the conflicts within yourself.. before you offer yourself up as a soldier for somebody else's cause.

ps.i just looked this over and realised i forgot to add as per always, that you please reserve judgement on my butt and thighs.. i prefer eating peanut butter to doing squats and lunges and stuff..
