We see the abbreviated stories

and cut to happy endings,

while we know

without endurance running through it,

victory is gutted.

We don’t know enough to know everything,

and the uncertainty is torture,

so we tell stories

to fill in the gaps

a pile of leaves, over holes we then jump on.

Time is our most steady creation, the creature we made

that overcomes us.

and as we cut corners, and create shortcuts

time cuts through us.

Endure, complete, wait

I am a writer with an extremely active imagination. I love learning answers to questions and what makes everything and everyone tick. I am a "Unique case, medically" if nothing else. I am flawed in my extreme aversion to failure (even when "success" isn't good for me,) but have come a long way in ditching the perfectionist mindset. I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
