When my sister was explaining the futility of my expectations
Her favorite line was, "You keep trying to use logic and reason to explain the world."
The echoes of my angry thoughts spun between my ear drums
"How dare you hurt me?!"
"How dare someone hurt me when I didn't do anything wrong!"
"How dare you expect me to be kind and rational when someone hurt me so terribly!"
It was a perfect spiral
That was only broken by guilt at my realization that I was hurting
the people I had promised to protect and teach
to be better
than I am.
Maybe if I spent more time thinking about the pain I cause others without intention
My intended outcomes would be more likely to occur
And once again I spiral
No prequels yet. Why not write one?
No sequels yet. Why not write one?
