I'm looking at my teenage bedroom
I'm looking at the arrangement of things
figurines, posters, candles, books, CDs and perfume bottles
A collection of ideologies
An echo in the space I inhabited
I feel like an archaeologist
digging up a past to make sense of my own present
I'm drawn to a source of light
propelled by curiosity I dig deeper
Some objects have remained
they feel familiar
some ideas have remained
others are forgotten
I guess they weren't that important
I'm looking at my present self
I'm looking at my phone
It fits nicely into the palm of my hand
The whole world
I have the best view from where I'm sat
of all the things that people do
I'm interested in everything and nothing at the same time
I remember and forget at the same time.
I worship and I'm indifferent at the same time
I want to show it to you too
