I prefer the early morning, before anyone else is awake.

I prefer doing it myself.

I prefer suggesting.

I prefer new.

I prefer black leather boots.

I prefer checking off boxes.

I prefer not knowing and, therefore, not having the responsibility.

I prefer keeping my mouth shut.

I prefer to look at things existentially.

I prefer to fake it till I make it.

I prefer to rewatch the same movies 50 times.

I prefer not obsessing over things, although that doesn’t stop me.

I prefer actions to words.

I prefer running.

I prefer pine scented cleaning supplies.

I prefer feeling misunderstood over having to explain my thoughts.

I prefer many things, but most of all

I prefer not to let preference control me.

(Original poem by Wislawa Szymborska)
