Book Find: Fahrenheit 451

Author: R. Bradbury

When the books I read are not of my own volition...

Do others also get this feeling? As if, even the simplest act of what you can read and stay reading up until the last page will happen or will not happen outside of your own control. As if the books choose their time when they get read, when they can be understood and when they can be lived. As if it is you, the person, who is the insignificant piece in the party - an unheeded bystander watching all things and non-things flow right past by.

Lucky Bastards

We lucky bastards have all of the fun
We have the best of talents
We have the best of skills

We bring out the worst in another bastard
Push him to desperation, to his corner of self-destruction
We lucky bastards kill dreams if we must

Whether we mean it or not,
Collateral damages are part of our business
Whatever it takes to get the results that we want

We lucky bastards do what we do
Because we can get away with it
Because only we, lucky bastards, deserve the best of this world

It Is

If-s and If Ever-s,
       in matters of the heart,
              are illusions
At the end of all the hypothetical plots
It is what it is
It's not meant to be

Mood in Words

I realize now that I have high expectations
   not because of my own ideals alone
I have high expectations
   because I have been lucky to have met few
   real-life role models
I have been blessed to have crossed paths with
   few truest friends
I have been brought up with an endangered warmth
   of a loving family
I know what good looks like
I know what real feels like
Experience has taught me to have high standards
And I'm not going to be apologetic for being
   accustomed to those
I'll never tell myself to lower my expectations
   ever again just because of encountering few bad
   eggs along the way
