A declaration

I refuse, with as little restraint as one may have, and with a fervor that borders on extremist religiosity, to live the rest of my life with as much fear, anger, and insecurity, that I have lived the first part of it. I will not go through life distrusting other people; I will not go through life with the assumption of disappointment and an expectation of a lack of “real meaning”; I will not go through this life in a box of my own making, fashioned by my own hands, made of materials stripped out of my flesh and my soul, and sealed with my blood.

I won’t do it. I refuse. My life is worth more than that — my life simply is more than that — and I won’t hide it away in the dark, suffocating it, any longer.

Raison d’etre

"Raw," she said. "I want something primal. I want something bare and naked. I want you to give me this life raw, unbidden, unhidden, free, fair, and true. Can you do that? Can you do that for me?"

One may only try.
