"The Boy Who Isn’t Really All That Special"
Danny walks down the hallway, into the living roomEveryone is fast asleep, but Danny is filled with doom and gloomHe may not ever realize, but his subconscious already knowsThat’s he’s just really not that special, and it obviously shows.
Even though he’s only seven, it’s still abundantly clearThat he ain’t curing any disease, or winning Boy of the Year.No society changing inventions will come from his average mind,And his thoughts and/or opinions will never alter the course of humankind.
He doesn’t know that yet, and he’ll always be told a lieThat he’s a unique snowflake, and a special lil’ guy.He’ll belabour under this myth for a lifetime’s worth of years,Living an average life filled with average happiness and tears.
But does it really matter if Danny isn’t the special-est guy on Earth?And the world won’t feel any impact from his death or birth?Because if EVERYONE is special, then no one really isEach person has their role to play, and being Un-Special is his.

"The Boy Who Isn’t Really All That Special"

Danny walks down the hallway, into the living room
Everyone is fast asleep, but Danny is filled with doom and gloom
He may not ever realize, but his subconscious already knows
That’s he’s just really not that special, and it obviously shows.

Even though he’s only seven, it’s still abundantly clear
That he ain’t curing any disease, or winning Boy of the Year.
No society changing inventions will come from his average mind,
And his thoughts and/or opinions will never alter the course of humankind.

He doesn’t know that yet, and he’ll always be told a lie
That he’s a unique snowflake, and a special lil’ guy.
He’ll belabour under this myth for a lifetime’s worth of years,
Living an average life filled with average happiness and tears.

But does it really matter if Danny isn’t the special-est guy on Earth?
And the world won’t feel any impact from his death or birth?
Because if EVERYONE is special, then no one really is
Each person has their role to play, and being Un-Special is his.

Of course I’ll hurt you. Of course you’ll hurt me. Of course we will hurt each other. But this is the very condition of existence. To become spring, means accepting the risk of winter. To become presence, means accepting the risk of absence. Antoine de Saint-Exupéry,The Little Prince  (via escepticismos)

For most of us the John Lennon line about life being what happens when you’re making other plans seems academic at first but, as the years go by, passes through phases of being something funny, something clever, something understandable and then something cruel. The worst part about our headlong trudge to the tomb is the way that once we realize how much road is already behind us it is far too late to go back and fix the mistakes we made along the way. Maybe the best bit about life—and I am setting an admittedly low bar here, but look what we have to deal with—is that although we are always tempted to pinpoint specific instances where the decisions we made had irrevocable effects on our trajectory from that moment forward, if we are honest with ourselves we can admit that, for the most part, we were going to wind up exactly where we did no matter what. We are who we are and the choices we make are the results of those immutable traits that add up to the person who, for better or worse and usually worse, stares back at us in the mirror each morning with a mixture of pity and astonishment. If we could turn back time we would mostly make the same mistakes, maybe at different moments but always moving us in the same direction. You’ve fucked up your life through an accretion of small details, not by one or two enormous errors. It is pointless to pine for a do-over; you would just do it over badly. That is who you are and at some point you will have to make peace with it. That said, you do have a chance this weekend to go back in time and do things differently, but it happens at 2 AM Sunday morning and, if you are not sleeping through it, you will almost certainly be ensconced in a bad decision you won’t be able to do anything to alter with the extra hour you get. That’s the way life works. It’s what happens when you’re busy finding ways to fuck things up for yourself. Death will probably be a relief. Alex Balk (via kateoplis)
There is no problem so bad that you cannot make it worse. Chris Hadfield (via kateoplis)
