There are only 3 constants in this world: fear, disappointment, and pain! Any other emotions we experience are fleeting and the only comfort we have are the return of these 3. The fear keeps me alert and on my guard, ever vigilant in my search for the underlying flaws that are bound to exist in all of us. In most cases they aren't hard to find, jealousy, hatred, bitterness, anger.. all hiding just below the surface of each damaged heart and soul... The comfort comes in the pain, the relief of knowing that the dangerous has passed and it settles around me like a familiar fog pulling me back inside myself.. back to the place where i belong. The pretty liars cloaked by the pretty lies that hide their true hideous selves. Our lies are the glue that hold together all the broken pieces so that from a distance we appear whole but the closer we draw to one another the more obvious it becomes that important parts are missing and unraveling at the seams. This world preaches faith to beings who have no right to it. We are all broken and tired yet we push on repeating the same mistakes day after day only to yield the same bitter fruits.
Children don't have to read fairy tales to know that dragons exist. They know dragons exist already. A fairytale tells children that dragons can be killed.
