18. Chicago.
Saved by grace.

I’m a Christian, although I definitely struggle a lot with faith for different reasons.

But as a Christian, I get really irritated with other Christians who seem to just go along with the system and society and just respond to people who object to the problems of the world with “life isn’t fair.”

Life should be fair. It shouldn’t be about inequality and always trying to get ahead of everyone else. Especially because that’s not what Jesus was or is about.

How about instead of playing the game you try to change the game?

In my head thoughts open

like doors

leading to other doors leading

to other doors leading to other

doors.

Every time a new door opens

the others slam shut,

angry toddlers not to be

ignored.

Empty threats directed

at the darkness are my only

solution and,

I make these hallways

my home.

Doomed to repetition,

I open and reopen door after door

in search of spark or fire.

My to-do list now that I’m done with finals

Humans are just beautiful monsters.

Possessors of beautiful complexity,

they turn

when they learn the art of destruction.

It burns, but

swiftly

it becomes all they know.

Finding out that I got all A’s in my classes

When I think about studying for finals

What if, at the very bottom of the ocean, there’s no sand or rock but just a giant stingray that covers the entire ocean floor?
