Thinking a lot today about being a better person over time but still being aware of how terrible a person I used to be, so:

🥚

In the spirit of Easter, if this toot gets 50 boosts I will link everyone to both of my poetry deviantart accounts, circa 2007, and you can roast the hell out me for eternity

After this I will delete both of them, which I should have done a really long time ago

my xangas (where I talked about keeping Marx in my locker) are long gone, unfortunately(?)

Considering my romantic past there is an extremely good chance that someone I wrote some of these about is a masto user now

Both are completely unchanged from their original states, I will not edit anything to make it look less bad, even if that means I'm self-doxxing. my middle name is Robert. it's fine

1/5 of the way there and I already have heartburn

I guess I should set a time limit on this. 4:30 EDT I guess

23 boosts left to total mental freedom from my adolescence (Thanks max I am a writer not a math guy)

These poems are CW'ed for gore, mild sexual content, drug use, alcohol, uh, bad writing, heavy use of slant rhyme... smoking... bad writing......

*brand new voice (very appropriate to the situation)* "Fourteen boosts away... my greatest fear"

I both do and do not want to achieve this goal. For me, it's like (looking up catharsis on wikipedia) that

The egg represents that I am going to be turned into an tonight

OK I guess we're doing this: links include nsfw content, including references to teens and drugs, alc, sex, a cartoon illustration of gore, etc etc etc 

Please make sure to tag your reacts with so I can keep track, though lord knows why I would want to

If you're screen capping these and they have cw-able stuff, please cw them homies

@alex I was trying to find my fanfic yesterday from pre-2000 Xanga.

@densetsu I lost all my myspace content in one of their migrations

@alex I'm not gonna make you do this! but yr a Brave Man

@byttyrs it's okay; I am a buddhist and it's important to release things you are attached to, nothing should be held in amber even if it carries ancient and terrible plagues in its thorax

@laser I trust her, she doesn't lie to me multiple times in one day

@laser @alex I also boosted it from my octodon, ooh I also still have an olds.town

@alex I figured it was just a typo, but I'll never pass up the opportunity

@alex as a man whose crimes against "verse" are in full view of the public internet under his own name on a blog continuously updated since the age of like 16 if anyone ever bothers to look, i'm not sure if i can endorse this undertaking.

@brennen That is a life's work. I am thinking of this as spring cleaning the spirit of grimy adolescence from my corporeal form
