Beginnings and Endings

You move. You pack up and leave. To a new place. In search of that person you have always thought you can become. You meet people, you meet obstacles, you push through. You wage war against a massive setup with just the strength of your mind. You stay up nights and talk to your dreams. You tell them the state of the world. You go over back and forth in your head to find nooks and crannies in the system through which you can fall through. Once in, you go to great lengths to change the system. You go through long periods of faithlessness. You want to touch lives, to shape them. You want to teach people how to mold their lives in the same way as you have molded yours. But it's a fickle world. You realize that the people are doomed. They do not share the same fire that you live with. They cannot stand against the test of the times. Then you learn to feel the comfort of not fitting in. You learn the meaning of minding your own business.
