… I just couldn’t fool myself into believing that the system works.
I laid my head on the pillow and I listened to the wind howl through the rig, the water rushing over the hull with the ebb.
I couldn’t sleep, I was thinking of poison.
Poison is a substance that can potentially kill an organism if introduced in high enough doses. If you introduce minute amounts of poison to a healthy organism you can build from that poison a stronger organism but the delicate balance of minute introduction is hard to achieve and can only be accomplished with a shit-load of personal interest.
… Hi, I’m sorry I have to say this but… I quit.
I’ve decided to go back into my field of circumnavigating the planet Earth discovering change.
Thank you for the opportunity to do this work but I’m afraid my lack of trust in the entire system ,that this incredibly dedicated group of wonderful people are working within, is poison. I don’t want to damage this movement by introducing you to anymore of the poison of contempt and doubt.
Thank you, I’ll see you at the victory party for nation’s first popularly voted Marriage Equality law.
