From Gatsby’s Abandoned Children

Find what you love
and cut yourself open.

Jesus Christ, fuck the metaphor
Go live what Freedom truly means.
Find someone you Love
be ready to take a bullet
Stop reading motivational quotes
and be ready to lose some teeth.

This is an I Love You
from Gatsby’s murderer.

This is for you.

Love, Gatsby’s Abandoned Children
Rainbow Children
Traveling Kids
Those with hearts shaped like fists

From the bum who throws the only couple dollars he has in another beggars cup.
