We Didn’t Ask To Be Born…
Humans have been around for over 200,000 years, yet I can’t recall hearing of a single person actually wanting to be born. Being alive has to be the biggest ponzi scheme of all time. Hear me out on this one, and let me briefly explain to you why this so-called “beautiful” thing called life, ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.
In my opinion, the only good years in life are the ones that we are too young to remember. Has anyone really enjoyed life after the age of 13? Probably not. Picture this, it’s 2006.. you get home from school and you run to your room, turn on your Xbox, and immediately hop into a party with your buddies that you literally just saw 30 minutes ago. Where we droppin’ boys? I think not. We’re playing a little game called Call of Duty 4, Modern Warfare. I just popped a chubby while reminiscing. Anyways, this was one of the small windows in time where you were able to call someone a fag and not face public shaming/ridicule/legal ramifications. Truly a simpler time. Nothing will ever beat the feeling of gaming with your boys at a very young age, and that was likely one of the last care-free memories that we will have during our lives, at least for the foreseeable future.
Reality check. It’s about to be 2019, and life is not going the way you thought it was going to. Pretty much all of us are stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. We all go through 13 + years of school, where we learn about chemistry, algebra, and the god-damn Revolutionary war. They also spent some time on the industrial revolution and how monopolies can be detrimental to a society’s economics. Well, wanna know what they didn’t teach us? That being born is literally the largest monopoly, ponzi scheme, con-job, of ALL TIME. Fuck!!! We work 40+ hours a week, but for what? We make all this money to “live”but we wind up spending it on rent, groceries, water, clothes and other shit that we NEED to live. On top of this, we have to pay money just to STAY ALIVE!!! What a fucking joke.
And the rest of the money we have left over? If you’re smart, you save or invest it, but saving money is only for nerds and lonely people. The rest of us spend our last 300 bucks at the same bar, drinking the same beer with the same people every weekend. We get absolutely black out drunk every time we leave our houses on a Friday night or Saturday morning. Now, does it make us feel better about being dooped into our own existence? Absolutely not. But for those short 6 hours, when everyone has a drink in their hands, drunkenly singing the words to Piano Man, all the worries of life just seem to slip away.
The point is, none of us asked to be here.. but here we are. We all got our different issues, different problems, and unique lives, but at the end of the day we are all running in the same race. We all try hard to make something of ourselves, but why? What’s the point? None of us will make it out of this world alive.. so I guess what I’m trying to say is that: Life sucks, but life sucks for everyone. That’s what makes us all human. I guess all we can do is: sit back, crack open a cold Busch light and pray that the world ends sooner rather than later.
