Creed Bratton - “All the Faces” (Live)
As heard on The Office Series Finale, which did not fail to make me teary. I cannot say I was a superfan or anything, but I watched the show every week for the last 9 seasons and I’m sad to see these characters go. I loved how they wrapped everything up. And Pam’s statement about life being short, and how you should just go for it really struck a chord.
But I think this Creed quote sums it up best:
“It all seems so very arbitrary. I applied for a job at this company because they were hiring. I took a desk at the back because it was empty. But, no matter how you get there or where you end up, human beings have this miraculous gift to make that place home.”
What if I have a son in the future
And he sees me as everyone else sees me.
Or he doesn’t see me at all.
And possibly the worst possible outcome,
What if he sees me the way I see myself?
