Word of Advice

If you want something dead. Kill it yourself.

"I'm only a man in a funny red sheet"

I think I just ran out of road.

This is not a fork, because I don't have much choice. Simpler times saw me in a cape as I waved my shiny sword and shield. I was happy. I was a him, a him that I saw on TV and read about in books. Killing was easy, it was fun and clean. Witches, bewildered by my mastery of magic, throned me as King of their little cozy house. I lived as a big smile, and every night, I slept noisily in a room decorated with heads of slain dragons.

.... I used to fly.

Dragons turned out to be the least of my worries.

I can't fly, any more.

I'd don't take it lightly. At all.

Blind as a Bat

If anything, he is not blind. He may seem so, but have you ever seen him stumble? No one ever did. In fact, he can see so well it scares you. True, he bears darkness. Or is it light? Have you ever seen him shine? I know I did.

If anything, you are blind. With eyes wide open. In every trembling wing, you saw a dive and in every flap you saw a fall. But he sees, and comes from blinding light that you mistake for darkness.

Blind in faith, he is. Can't you see?

Skewed Wisdom

To preach is to stand on a tower in the middle of the desert. You may stand highest, but you remain alone.

Flip a Coin

We sometimes go about thinking that, in our daily lives; we strive to do the right thing, say the right words and perhaps, if we're lucky, walk the right path. We rarely however stop and take a good look at the visage of righteousness. Right can be obscured by reality; it can become that one demon you don't have the courage to approach.

If everything is relative and controversial, how can one even identify the righteousness of their actions, let alone rectify them if they turn out to be, alas, wrong.
