Ce n'etait qu'un renard semblable 'a cent mille autres. Maus j'en ai fait mon ami, et il est maintenant unique au monde.- Antoine Saint-Exupery


crying in the dark wishing I could wander in a parkĀ 

but we don't live like that

fairytales have solitude, but I don't know what to do

cause I don't

so this is my outlet -or something so

sometimes I get frustrated with cliche folk and wanna exclaim "no!"

with their endless complaints and minimal restraints

come walk in my shoes

how they would pain you


The author's comments:

I wrote this peice years ago, at a time when I didn't feel I had safe and comfortable places to get away to, from time to time. It's partly about that feeling when you're so frustrated with people for complaing about so many super small things and people's inability to empathize. It's also semi inspired by one of my favorite books: Walk Two Moons.
