The text follows in case you're on mobile 

 Dear fucking moron,
Instead of worrying so much
about what people who don't matter think of you

Instead of always having to buy
The latest and greatest whatever
and spending money like it's going out of style

Instead of worrying about finding
a man to complete you
and hopefully not beat you

Try getting your shit together a little bit
so I don't have to end up broke and broken
cleaning up the remnants of what your out-of-control self
left behind for me to deal with

Your future self

NaPoWriMo: Make a walking archive
I didn't exactly do that. I found an image with a bunch of stuff in it that worked.

  1. Sadly my younger self was usually deaf to good/well meaning advice. She only too the negatives she heard on board. Which is something which carried through from her to me (at every point on the time continuium.)

    1. Sadly, I'm still like that, although I don't tend to tolerate abusive bullshit as much as I used to. Also, I don't give a fuck about fashion anymore, thankfully. What a way to go about spending ass-tons of money that I don't have to spend!

    1. I wouldn't say it's brave so much as pig-headed.
      I'm archiving this blog. My poetry appears at poetryofthenetherworld.blogspot.com. Hope I'll see you there!
