Retrospective: “I Have Found…” (June 2015)

Among the Weeds, the Flowers

“I Have Found…”

I have found—

that everyone is faking it
that nobody knows for sure
that the ones who are positive they know best
… don’t

I have found—

that I’m better off doing my own faking
that dealing with facts gets results
that if I’m going to die, it should be from my mistakes
… not someone else’s wishful thinking

I have found—

that I sleep soundly when I make my own decisions
that things do not always turn out okay
that someday, everyone dies
… and that is not my fault
