Away

And fantasy it was, for we were not strong, only aggressive; we were not free, merely licensed; we were not compassionate, we were polite; not good, but well behaved. We courted death in order to call ourselves brave, and hid like thieves from life. We substituted good grammar for intellect; we switched habits to simulate maturity; we rearranged lies and called it truth, seeing in the new pattern of and old idea the Revelation and the World.

Strains of humanity alongside the shore of illusion.
Strength,Freedom,compassion and manners..
Term that sustain an astronomical variance of meaning.
The entirety of our existence is a mere platform, bound to the strings of fate and destiny.
Resides within us, the depiction of reality..the constitutional right to feel and to convey!!
A fiction-less reality does not exist.
A pattern of contemplation that i must admire, although i dont totally accept.
