You Are Enough
« on: April 12, 2019, 04:44:49 am »

The world may come at you with knives
and try to cut away the pieces of you
that do not fit their vision
of who you should have been

The voices may pile up one atop the other
screaming your inadequacies
Rehashing every loss and sorrow
You never learned to grieve

And you may spend your whole life fighting
And never seem to make ground
You may lose your friends
And see your enemies in power

But know this

You do not have to fulfill any prophesy
You do not have to avenge the girl
You do not even have to get your shit together
To be worthy of this love

You are enough as you are now
With your failures and your fears
With your dreams unaccomplished
With your weaknesses and doubt

You with every goofy grin
With your scars and addictions
With the weirdness to your walk
And your terrible fashion sense

You are loved

The Wizard Joseph

A lot of people need to hear this. I mean a LOT.

Life can be seen as a game with no reset button, no extra lives, and if the power goes out there is no restarting.  If that's all you see life as you are not long for this world, and never will get it.

Yes. This is probably my favorite thing you’ve written, and you’ve written a lot of my favorite things.

I nominate this for Holy Nonsense. It occurs to me that Q.G. may be a bit too modest to nominate it herself, so as a member of the project I'm officially saying put this shit in there please.

This is beautiful. I'm serious, not saying it just to say it. I'd shitpost all over anything, not this, and not the last post about the cab driver.

Going up on Redbubble after the patreon waiting period. The full image probably wouldn't work for the hoodie, but I can see about framing the text?

It’s a shame they don’t do the fun printing for hoodies. Yeah, that’d be great. I am getting a real chance to make progress on my life here, so money to pay for things isn’t impossible in my near future, and your store has been top of the list ever since I got new boots.

I can see about doing some kind of irregular border for more of the image? Hoodies don't do all-over prints, and a big rectangle would look ridiculous

Yeah, do whatever you think will turn out best! I understand the limits, and I love all of your work anyway. I do like the wispiness and the colors but I totally understand those don’t translate well with what Redbubble gives you.
