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?
When I realize that everyone I know is getting engaged and I’m still single
In my head thoughts open
leading to other doors leading
to other doors leading to other
Every time a new door opens
the others slam shut,
angry toddlers not to be
Empty threats directed
at the darkness are my only
I make these hallways
Doomed to repetition,
I open and reopen door after door
in search of spark or fire.
Humans are just beautiful monsters.
Possessors of beautiful complexity,
when they learn the art of destruction.
It burns, but
it becomes all they know.
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?
