Chi-twown

i used to dress differently when going into the hip parts of town to play the part. it’s ridiculous, this subconscious pressure we put on ourselves to please strangers. to appease the likeness of those we will never see or speak to again.

so i stopped trying so hard, because i realized i’d rather put that energy in being a better person to those closest to me. a better friend, sister, daughter, mentor. this is the only role i want to play. this is the role that matters.
