I want to confess and lace the truth – my truth – with some poetry and magic

Keywords: opinions

My middle-class upbringing, while I am deeply grateful for what I had, did not prepare me for the unfairness of the industry I entered, and it did not equip me with the skill that I could have only afforded if I had had socioeconomic privileges. It was easy for me to chide my restless heart, like every other time, for I thought, it pined for something that was beyond my reach. It has taken many years for me to meet the ultimate truth – nothing was wrong with me, but the system was rigged.

I try really hard to have the right perspective on things and it just doesn’t stay the way I want it to

Growing up Christian, I was always asked to not focus on things below (worldly things) and on things above (God, eternity, etc.). Now, as I go through a crisis of faith, I find that really hard to do. I really don’t have any idea what I’m supposed to look at. Well, I’ve got a vague idea of what’s beautiful and true. However, aligning your perspective to something sounds like a big deal and I don’t know if what I know right now is of substance or worth committing to.

I want to ‘fill’ the story so that you will be satisfied when you hear it … and that sometimes makes me an untruthful person

I will always tell the truth on this because I see it as my heart on paper and if I lie – even once – on this – then I’m ripping apart my own heart.

The question I cannot help but ask is if they truly “lived happily ever after” or they are just happy to settle for something that is less than the total misery that had smothered their hopes out of existence in the first place

Keywords: thoughts

Are they just so lost that any sliver of light is enough to go on? Maybe “happily ever after” for them is just getting out. Maybe “happily ever after” had nothing to do with the prince and just implied that there were able to move past the trauma in their soul or possibly they finally just let it swallow them up and lost who they ever were to begin with.
