Optimism
By Alex Anthony
Life is the greatest gift God, your parents, or anyone else can give you. It's the privilege to have fun, be free, and create a life for yourself...every day. You were given that gift, but it doesn't matter unless you decide to do something with it; no one else can decide how you live. Yes, some people may have control over you, but it's your choice whether or not you break free and how you break free. You are going to make the decisions in your life, only you. The only way I believe in living, is living life to the fullest, live it the way you want to. Be firm, but carefree. Be strong, but caring. Be vulnerable, but smart. Be cautious, but courageous. Be the best you can be. Don’t be what anyone else wants you to be because it’s your choice and your life to live adequately.

We are young, we run free, got our friends, got the night, we'll be all right.

ThHands_in_the_air.jpgrow our hands in the air. Just leave your problems on the shelf.
Laid back, laughs, freedom, but only punishable by uniformity. It's a part of who I am.
In the morning, the sun rises I become incredibly fragile; a child vulnerable to the world. The wind plays as I pursue a journey.
But I'm strong; persevere calmly and purely: discover and ask questions for myself.









I find a dream and a life of my own, a place in the clouds, to think and go.

Nature is a refuge, a lack of authority: freedom.
Love is justified through the beauty of the untamed natural world.
Sitting, Waiting, Wishing one day the devilish civilization will be vanished and sunrise will determine opportunity.


My opinions matter as a counterpoint to the wretched governing system.
Be free and independent; Free Your Mind and Cry Freedom.Flag.jpg
Live Life the way I'm meant to: my way.










I_matter.jpgThe teachings of parents and nature is the cause of so much amazement.
I know I've got a good thing right here, where I am now, but I want to create my own astonishments:
for the world to see. To discover that I matter, you matter, we matter and education is not the highest.







Don't be fancy, just get dancy. Why so serious?...Raise your glass.
Toast.jpgI'm put here to lose no time and to question,
with boldness, the existence of perfection and uniformity;
To leave with giving all my secrets away.






Life's unexpected, but feeling the liberty, the whole lottery, of living, all day, everyday, each day, is triumph.
Who doesn't know what I'm talking about?





My philosophy, this philosophy, can not be purged away. It's submitted with the fullest meaning of life.
philosophy.jpgMy intention by attempting philosophical reasoning was to exude my ways of life, but this proved to be something of incomprehensible challenge.
My philosophy is only two words I've allotted myself to:


Live Life
