I guess this is where I'm supposed to write about who I am and what I'm into?
Well, this should be interesting. Actually, that's not up to me, but what else can you do?

This is what I had to say about myself about six months ago.

I'll let you decide if it's still relevant..

Let me say this from the outset: I am not a people person. Not even in a good light, not even at that special time of the year. I AM NOT A PEOPLE PERSON.

Do not confuse this, however, with some sort of phobia, or lingering childhood psychological drama (though they did exist in number). I choose to be who I am, because everything and anything else would be a betrayal of my most sacred, and possibly only belief: I am who I am.

So. I am not a people person; in fact, my day to day assertion is that humanity would be better suited for a career in tasting poison than in creating some trite ‘grand new future’.

Shall I introduce you to some paradox? Very well. Having said all of the above, I believe that people have the capacity to create a paradise out of anything. We can create diamonds from shit, and that, in the end, may be our sole redeeming feature. But people spend the majority of their time limiting themselves to the dross in which they were born, never experiencing the vast wonders that the universe has to offer, nor even missing the opportunity.

I have no faith in humanity because humanity has no faith in itself.

I am at all times my own worst enemy, because I criticize myself far more harshly than anyone else would dare to. Is it any wonder, therefore, that I divide myself from humanity? I hope to be all that I can be, to paraphrase an irritating maxim.

I am a firm believer in equality, but derisive of democracy. I believe that most people aren’t fit for life, but that exceptions do exist. I believe that Society is evil, but that society is a necessary psychological need. I despise organized religion, but retain a personal faith.

I believe in balance, and that polarization is what will destroy the world. I have spent my life trying to be a better person; but I'm not sure if I’m winning.

I believe that anger is a gift. Complacency is the only real sin we have left; everything else we have is just colouring and shading on our otherwise monochromatic lives.

I believe that you should make up your own fucking mind. Try for once to use that miraculous organ taking up space between your ears and form an opinion that doesn't rely on others for validation. Open your eyes and take in the world, and bring your own conclusions to the board. Be open to correction, be willing to accept change. Accept the fact that you will be wrong about a lot of shit in your life; accept it, and move on.

But primarily, make up your own fucking mind.

You are not required to accept anything at face value, we have the right to question. And make no mistake, regardless of the nation, it IS a right.

So yes. This is me, and these are things I have written. I've been writing from as early as I can remember, and I'll be writing until I can't remember who I am any more. The things I write might change, and how I feel about the things I write may change, but the same mind has been flowing, freezing, melting, stagnating, renewing and progressing underneath it all along.

Let me know what you think.

This is a poem that presents my experiences with depression and self-harming through my life. It's not particularly nice, but I hope it's able to help someone. I'm not trying to glorify anything, or excuse the actions I've taken, but rather talk it through as it occurred to me. Cheers.
