Feeling unnecessary as a human being is simultaneously intensely exciting and fiercely scary. It is an intimidating thought to rest on the statement that we are nothing but evolutionary coincidences. We want this love that we’re sometimes lucky to experience to be understood – and we sometimes imagine for it to be kept alive when we’re death. On the other hand we have the ability to do absolutely whatever we want to do on this short ride. We can cover up our raw nerves by pushing our boundaries unlimitedly. We can mess up our skin and bones, mess up our fragile minds. Who will care – at least for long? I’ll tell you my love, you’re free, you’re young. Take advantage of it. Is it frightening, this sudden freedom that covers you now?
