why do we capitalize 'i' and not 'you'? // a poem of questions

question mark graffitti
via pinterest

they say we are made up of nearly 70% water
but i think i am made up of nearly 70% questions...

maybe?

for example i wonder the little important things like

why do we capitalize 'i' and not 'you' or 'we'?

and
why do we laugh less when we get older?
is life just less funny?

or
are we just less sensitive to the funny things?

and
is there really such a thing as soul mates?

and then there are the big important questions that keep us up at night like

what is success really?

and
will i succeed?

and
am i egotistical or am i right?

and
will i ever change?

and
will everything be okay in the end?

and
what if i never know?

but there are much worse questions

like

what if i find out the answer and it shatters my foundation?

because sometimes the pain of ignorance
is easier to accept 
than the truth

or

is it not?

I know, guys, I know.  After my last post this probably seems totally emo and existential crisis-y, but I've been feeling a little bit this way recently and decided it was better to write about my questions than to smother them. But don't worry! It's not a huge deal.  I'm not depressed.  I'm functioning like a semi-normal human bean.  I just have a lot of questions.  And also I wanted to experiment with a new style of writing because YOU GUYS!!! I haven't done any creative writing in SOOOO long, and it's been really cramping my life, so I'm actually feeling pretty good now. Ya hear that? (-;

But enough about me, I have questions for you guys too, because as you now know, I'm FULL of questions. What's something you want to know the answer to?  What's something you don't want to know the answer too? And last, but most definitely not least, CAN YOU BELIEVE IT'S OCTOBER ALREADY?!

  5. Oh my gosh!!!! How is it October? It seems like just yesterday it was the first week of September. These questions are so true. I ask myself those sometimes too. A question I ask myself a lot is "how am I a junior in high school?? When did that happen?"
