“Alright”

========

A combination.

No, several combinations:

Euphorea, Despair, Love, Anger, Dreams, Fears

Healthy and Hurt

Uplifted and ground down…

I have no time—I have all the time I need.

I have no contacts—I have hundreds of contacts.

My youth is gone—but I don’t miss it.

Failure brings wisdom—success brings Hubris.

It is late at night and early in the morning.

I’m the picture of health—till I look in a mirror.

I want to tell everyone what to do—but I don’t know what to do.

We need people in charge—but nobody likes being told what to do.

Some of us just aren’t trying—others are trying too hard.

Death is the ultimate finish line—but life is sweet and warm.

Love makes me crazy—but it’s the only thing that makes sense.
