If you can't write the next line, well, you're dead. The past doesn't matter.
The past doesn't matter. People cling to it because it allows them to ignore the present.
To be converted you have to destroy your past, destroy your history. You have to stamp on it, you have to say 'my ancestral culture does not exist, it doesn't matter.'
There are people in your past that you can't shake free from no matter how hard you tried. There's a certain process that you have to go through to say goodbye. That fire doesn't get extinguished. You have to put a gun to it.
Whatever happened in the past doesn't really matter anymore to us right now.
It doesn't matter who you were or what you've done in the past. The only thing that matters is who you are right now.
Any live venue where there is alcohol served and it's past midnight there is gonna be fights. It doesn't matter if it's Hip-Hop, Rock or Jazz.
It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop.
You build on failure. You use it as a stepping stone. Close the door on the past. You don't try to forget the mistakes, but you don't dwell on it. You don't let it have any of your energy, or any of your time, or any of your space.
