What constraints keep you back from being you?
What bearing does age and gender and career have on you being yourself?
What skin that you fit in feels the most comfortable, the most effortless?
Does weight or age or the gray in your hair or the lack thereof make you any less a person? A non-person?
Does it make you less than?
What do you consider “cool?”
How do you define it?
What is effortless to you?
You mean you haven’t been waiting for this age to finally be the person you wanted to be since you were ten???
Your life is short.
There are so many boring copies of the same bland cookie-cutter person – you’re telling me that’s how you want to live?
To be normal and unremembered?
This is me.
This makes me feel good.
I don’t do it for you.
I don’t give a crap about you.
I’m put here on this earth to be myself so I can be happy.
I was not put on this earth to make you feel safe and comfortable – I was put here so I can be happy being myself.
Unfortunately, you don’t get to have a say in how I dress.
You don’t get to control me.
I don’t do this to impress you.
I don’t do this because I want to self-consciously project myself as someone else.
I do this because it is me.
I am Mark Moore.
And I live for myself.
I live to make myself happy.
I live because this is the only way I can live.
Now, who are you?
Who are you, really?
And if you aren’t who you’re supposed to be, if who you are doesn’t make you happy, then what the hell is the point of your life?
Life is short.
