“There comes a time in our lives when we do things that we don’t understand. We confuse ourselves, we might even logically oppose our impulses and yet we act on them anyway... There are some things that we feel that we absolutely must do. We might know that they are wrong, or pointless, or gravely punishable, and yet we do them anyway. These actions are not born of anger or emotion – we are perfectly sober. It’s rather inexplicable. When the time comes, we can’t stop ourselves and so we cannot blame ourselves.” -Umasi, Truancy

My life is an open book,
From the hardback cover,
From it’s soft and smooth pages,
From it’s complex and difficult plot,
From it’s fun and interesting characters,
When ever I think I am nearing the end,
A new and exciting tale is unfolding,
Pages are beginning to tear away,
And some pages are newly forming,
The paper is old yet new,
Staining brown yet dazzling white,
Wrinkled yet smooth as silk,
As the story continues on,
The white, withered, wonderful pages are filling,
With the joy the future has yet to bring.
