It’s Our Party We Can Love Who We Want [Daily Prompt: Can’t Drive 55]

Take the third line of the last song you heard, make it your post title, and write for a maximum of 15 minutes. GO!  Photographers, artists, poets: show us SPEED.

Of course the one day in my life that I decide, “I am going to listen to Miley Cyrus‘s song, ‘We Can’t Stop'”, I am caught red-handed.  I have never elected to listen to even one of her songs before today.  It is really funny.

“It’s our party we can love who we want.”  That is the third line in that song.  The song is about freedom.  I think it’s about breaking the chains of childhood and entering adulthood but because it is unknown territory people tend to go overboard and go crazy.  So I definitely feel there is a purgatory in between childhood and adulthood which is right smack in the middle of where Miley is in her life.  A crossroads.

It sucks that celebs have to go through each stage of their lives in the public eye because the “do what they want to” and then look back thinking “what the hell was I thinking?”  When we grow through life we all do things we aren’t proud of and it isn’t because we want to embarrass ourselves.  I feel we are all subconsciously searching for answers and hoping that the attention we bring to ourselves will give us those answers.  No one will ever admit it though.

I was listening to it because I have been feeling like a lump on a log the past few days and I wanted to envision myself having fun, doing whatever I want to without thinking about the consequences.  I was thinking about how irresponsible it would be to act out, act a fool but how freeing it would be at the same time. 

I need something new and exciting.  I was searching for excitement in my choice of music this morning while riding the bus to work.  I wanted my excitement to outweigh the negativity that I have swimming in my head.  And it is for no reason, I must add.

“And we can’t stop
And we won’t stop
Can’t you see it’s we who own the night
Can’t you see it we who bout’ that life”
