Ground Control To Common-Sense

~ you need not claim to be better than anyone… if their envy is pointing it out by itself ~

… When an ‘Audacious’ Person
crosses paths
with someone ‘Mendacious’
… they do not butt-heads…
one ‘Shines’ like a ‘Winner’,
whilst the other Schemes,
and Shitstirs like a… ‘loser’.
I am not going to ‘Make It’
by Destroying, Copying,
or causing any type
of Problems for anyone else
… it will all boil down to
the Quality of my Creativity.
No-one is in ‘The Way’…
there is no ‘Competition’ in
the Art World… only…
‘You’ pitted against ‘Yourself’.
There are [broken] ‘narcissists’
in every single Public Arena
… just waiting to Attack
anyone ‘Original’, ‘Talented’
and ‘Brilliant’ enough
to Stand Out like a Fucking Star!
You’re simply attracting ‘em
because you’re better than ‘em
… Remember That
when the petty ‘cowards’
and their idiot ‘flying monkeys’
are scrambling around
the Awesomeness of your ‘Light’…
