trying to tell the truth, but in a world that’s turned to chaos, lies are easier to swallow. Trying to be a good boy, but in a world full of adults who hurt their kids, lies are easier to turn to.
My favorite told me that if I was good, I could be real. That if I only told the truth, I would be made flesh and blood. What other child had to live up to such standards?
It’s easy to fail when the odds are impossible.
