It’s a metaphor

what the hell is that a metaphor for

Life

the unicorn represents us all as people the dylan sitting on it represents our thoughts, our hopes, and our dreams
We are the unicorn, crushed by all of the things we want to do with very little time to actually do it. As we struggle to do everything, our minds make what we want seem more close than they actually are.
After trying to make our dreams come true several times, we finally give up on them and just let them sit on our shoulders, forever reminding us that we are failures.

then what do your booty shorts represent?

How hot my legs are

Out of sheet spite of my parents because I know they would freak if they saw this, here is my very first attempts at make up and shit… I know it’s bad and I look like the American flag on the left, but hey I gotta start somewhere (especially when I have bad makeup and no brushes to work with)… So here’s to all the parents of kids who are embarrassed of their child’s sexuality, or gender, or ashamed of anything else about their child, because we are our own human beings, and I will do what I want with my body because it is my life to do it with.

Bravery is sometimes stepping out as the inner you, you want to be. You go!
