gazing in front of the screen, her eyes scroll across codes and blueprints

the archetypes of her life

each word scrolls along the monitor in vibrant, neon flashes

          "family"

                    "friends"

           "school"

                    "career"

          "emotions"

so many words, so many codes, so many commands, so many ways to ruin or improve her life

just a single keystroke, and everything can change

at last, her eyes settle on the one file she had been looking for; the one that mattered the most

"me"

a smile transcribes across her face as the cursor scrolls onto the program data, eyes continuing to search each individual option

just a single click, and everything can be rewritten

there's nothing in her gaze but serenity as the cursor at last hovers over the one she has been searching for so long

"UNINSTALL"
I really wish that life could be like a computer program. I wish I could just install and uninstall whatever I needed to at whatever times it was needed.

I wish I could completely uninstall myself, rewrite all my codes and encryption data, and then reinstall myself so that I was the person everyone wants me to be, rather than the person I really am.

When I think about it, I have a lot of wishes, don't I?

I have never wanted to be the person that other people want me to be, I only wish to be the person that I want to be.
I have heard again and again from people telling others about dating, who themselves know nothing that they only have to be themselves. But that is not true, not at all, but it is true that you shouldn't play games and pretend. what you should do is to change yourself, become the person you want to be. When you have become that person, other people will like you, because you will like yourself.

If only life was this easy! So many people would want to be able to uninstall things they don't like, and install other things to make life better. I definitely would. This poem is great, and very touching.

This is an incredibly interestign idea to think about...it sort of makes you wonder what life would actually be like if we could uninstall, re-install, and re-write everything about it...and how many people would jump at the chance to.

I would never do that. It's like suicide or brainwashing of some kind... We're not robots.

Sometimes I think that everyone around me WANTS to brainwash me.

And I really don't want that.

But it would be so much easier if I did.

It's better to play life on hard mode than to quit on easy.
