Oppositions

There exists this strange dichotomy between living in a world that tells you: live your passion; be brave!; don’t hold back; be open and honest; the heart wants what the heart wants; just do it (just do it) justdoitjustdoitjustdoit–

And then, in the next breath, you are punished for that. You are punished by being told: you want too much; don’t wear your heart on your sleeve; let go and wait; hurry up and wait; waitwaitwait–

You are told you are not enough and then told you are too much.

You are told you need to be braver and then told you have overreached.

You are told [less] and then punished for [more].

It is never just enough. You are never just enough.

I am never just enough.

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.
