Stay Weird and Keep Writing Pub Co. (group, and page)

Moments of Mess

I need to

enjoy these moments

of awkwardness.

These moments of


Moments of chaos.

At the end of the day

the crazy is what

sets the tone.

Itís what makes

life real.

Bask in it.

I often feel

an uneasiness

about it.

But thatís the magic.

Thatís when youíre

teetering on the edge.

Those are the best moments.

Most of the day

is surrounded with normal.

Most of the day

is bathed in average.

Average gets old.

Welcome in the disorder.

Welcome in the anarchy.

Welcome in the unknown.

Flow with it.

Drink it.

Dine it.

Be a part of the feast.

Feed off it.

Feel the awkwardness around you.

It is the realist

moment you will know.
