Hello, can you hear my voice? I'm talking to you, you who have crawled to a corner, frustrated by the vicissitude of life. I am tired just like you are, so tired. Every time grasping at any reason I look away and start anew. I am not scared of sorrow. I do not know what goes through your head. You are an enigma, insolvable. For that, I stopped trying to understand you, and me as well, a mere reflection of you.
I understood that it is all but a game and you always lose, that is when you emphasize on the rules.
What is hard to you? What has been the most difficult happening of your life?
What are you most scared of? To lose someone?
To not reach your dreams? To grow old?
To not be seen? To stay alone?
To lose your beauty? To become weak and wretched?
To become powerful? To get poor? To get rich?
To be religious? To lose your religion?
I'm scared you might not understand me. An unreasonable demand I know. I'm scared I might not ever become someone important. I'm scared I might never grow up, and stay in my childhood dreams. I'm scared to be judged and get hurt. I'm scared I might never be able to fully express myself.
I'm too scared.
In the end an outcome desired is not guaranteed, but we are supposed to be ourselves.
You set the price.
