Response to the Jailor

From College.

From College.

Reasons the Jailer is wrong:

Because I’m worth it.
Because I will go out today, even if it’s just a walk.
Because I want to be healthy, and skinny does not mean healthy.
Because I will only tell the truth, and people can interpret it however they please.
Because I can be a good person.
Because I don’t have to be original to be unique.
Because I am happier when things are clean, even if it is temporary.
Because I love my kids, and I want them to be happy.
Because I am worth the risk, and we love each other.
Because I don’t need to retire when I’m 50 to feel like a success.
Because I want to live now, even if I will die later.

I fight because I am strong.
I live because I love myself.
I care because I am a child of an amazing universe, with wonders everywhere I look.
Even if nobody misses me when I’m gone, I will miss me. I will miss the years of experience. I will miss my children growing up. I will miss my future career options. I will miss my chance at the universe.

Thank you reader, for being with me. You make me feel so much less lonely in this vast world.

    Maybe the first quarter moon has something to do with mood? I had two bad days and am finally heading in the right direction. I hope this is how you feel today, Rory.
