And then I wonder – did I ask these same questions upon my birth?

but something deeper –

an experience of ourselves.

Yet, without other people,

we may not experience peace or happiness.

Contradiction #5

Life’s bland without it;

reality’s distorted with it.

~ Kelly Hartland

Enforced confession

The hard knocks in life

can give us our strongest

and most striking features.
