STRIKE A POSE

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us
This monologue inspires me a lot these past weeks. I'm just obsessed with Lana's 
song Ride, please listen it here above while you're reading it. #loveit

"I was in the winter of my life- and the men I met along the road were my only summer. At 
night I fell sleep with vision of myself dancing and laughing and crying with them. Three years 
down the line of being on an endless world tour and memories of them were the only things 
that sustained me, and my only real happy times. I was a singer, not very popular one, who 
once has dreams of becoming a beautiful poet- but upon an unfortunate series of events saw 
those dreams dashed and divided like million stars in the night sky that I wished on over and 
over again- sparkling and broken. But I really didn’t mind because I knew that it takes getting 
everything you ever wanted and then losing it to know what true freedom is.

When the people I used to know found out what I had been doing, how I had been living- 
they asked me why. But there’s no use in talking to people who have a home, they have no 
idea what its like to seek safety in other people, for home to be wherever you lied you head.

I was always an unusual girl, my mother told me that I had a chameleon soul. No moral 
compass pointing me due north, no fixed personality. Just an inner indecisiveness that was 
as wide as wavering as the ocean. And if I said that I didn’t plan for it to turn out this way I’d 
be lying- because I was born to be the other woman. I belonged to no one- who belonged to 
everyone, who had nothing- who wanted everything with a fire for every experience and an 
obsession for freedom that terrified me to the point that I couldn’t even talk about- and 
pushed me to a nomadic point of madness that both dazzlez and dizzied me.

Every night I used to pray that I’d find my people- and finally I did- on the open road. 
We have nothing to lose, nothing to gain, nothing we desired anymore- except to make 
our lives into a work of art.

LIVE FAST. DIE YOUNG. BE WILD. AND HAVE FUN.

I believe in the country America used to be. I believe in the person I want to become, 
I believe in the freedom of the open road. And my motto is the same as ever- *I believe in 
the kindness of strangers. And when I’m at war with myself- I Ride. I Just Ride.*

Who are you? Are you in touch with all your darkest fantasies?
Have you created a life for yourself where you’re free to experience them?
I Have. I Am Fucking Crazy. But I Am Free." - Lana Del Rey
