I'm a big big big Lorde fan. She's amazing. Or maybe just saying that wouldn't do justice, I think of her as a person who helped me & shaped me in a person I am today. She is the modern age creative young witch woman with an attitude of a storm. This is what makes her songs the fiercest. This is what I'm going to talk about in this post, a firce song of her: glory & gore, my ultimate revenge song.
I've always been obsessed with the idea of revenge, the idea of finally destroying something/someone who did something real bad to me. I'm one of those people who remember, each little detail of things that made me feel something. The worst thing someone can make me feel is either fear or lesser about myself. And when I'm afraid or surrounded with darkest clouds of self doubt, I go mad & I fight. I fight with words and teen angst. And young women who fight back are rebels. We break rules.
Glory & gore revolves around sticking to your real self, rebelling against things to keep balance and being the fighter.
Now we're in the ring
And we're coming for blood
I like to play this song in my head when the real life drama gets closer and I need to prepare myself to focus and be ready to attack. I become the warrior.
You could try and take us
But we're the gladiators
I love the idea of being the young fighter. My life revolves around self-discovery and new struggles everyday, being 18 never meant crazy partying careless teenager but a grown person with books to read, beautiful art to make, revenges to plot, breaking the real life rules with grace and not losing. And it's fun, it's wild and life gets rough sometimes but it's fun.
Maroon is definitely the color of power & victory for me. I can totally go slay every problem in life in this outfit.
The current revenge I'm working on goes like: "Living well is the best revenge" (best quote, thx George Herbert )
It's a work in progress, it's going well, little by little, I'm lerning to live, I'm learning to live well.
What's your revenge song? Any Lorde fans here?
