    It seems as though graffiti writers have more problems than most. After years and years of this shit I havent gained anything. And no, doing a sick burner will not make you a happier person. Recognition will not provide redemption. All this shit leads to is felonies, violence, headaches, health problems, lack of sleep, anxiety and social isolation yet im still am compeled to do it. I used to have grand schemes about what graffiti meant but now I know that it doesnt mean shit. Its an ego trip for ego manics to feel better about themselves and feel important. To make us feel permanent in this very impermanent world. Even when I get past that I still see no real reason. If you are just picking this up then quit now. It will infect your system like a virus and become a part of you. Soon youll probably develop a double life. Be at war with yourself between your graffiti ego and the fact that you are normal. Everyone is as crazy as you (almost). And yet no one will ever acknowledge, understand, or appreciate your passion like you do. Your view of yourself will be distorted and different from reality...

    speak for yourself bud.
    leave it alone if it's not working for you, but don't assume it's not working for anyone else.

    graffiti is overrated, i find cooking as a more enjoyable medium to let out my artistic expression

    uhhh Danger Zone... I'm not even cracking jokes are being critical here.. the real the real .. but ummm... you probably have a mental disorder and you just think it's graff doing that to you.. get your head checked homeboy... I have no problem with my identity as a regular, honest, responsible human being.. although I still have mental issues.. and live the graffiti double life.. it's a big world with a bunch of different human beings homeboy.. get your head right....

    yo you say what you said about anything like you can say that exact thing about life and a billion other things. graff just makes you have a certain feeling of fun and thats what people do it for and if you dont have it then something is wrong with you not graff.
