Reflection from January 20th, 2008 @ Age 26
RE: LIFE EXPECTATIONS — CHANGING THE SOCIOLOGICAL SCRIPTURES IN MY HEAD.
I’ve been wondering lately, more often than I care to convey, where in the world I gathered the notion that life would be, or rather should be, so damn glamorous. It’s made things very difficult, and yet the funny thing is, my search for meaning, I know is not related. It is not related because I don’t want it to be. It is not related because I fundamentally cannot accept the premise that in order to find meaning in life, one must have money. That premise obfuscates everything that I believe in, though I will admit the things that I believe in are quickly becoming few and far in between.
I feel my poetry is returning…it feels refreshing and gives me hope.
