I E

’m pretty sure it was meant to be this way.

ver since that early morning wake up call, when something pulled the trigger and my lungs caught first wind and gave them an ear full or two, ever since then I am fairly certain it was meant to unravel like this. From the white hospital lights to the green valley, the fussy eating with fingers and the packed school lunches, through the hazy neon 90’s suburban growth spurt, discovering the trips and the tunes, travelling and conversing, it’s almost definately some predefined progression. Learning and discovery, ego and conscious, love and loss.. the stuff one might be inclined to write about.

A

nd it is most possibly the same for everbody. The blurred faces you see out of the train window are all streaked with different stories. The ones you elbow in the line all have their tall tales. I’d wager it was meant to be the way it is for them too. Everyone is a mothers fathers daughters brothers lovers first last beginning and end. Everyone is a warmonger peacemaker fighter and forgiver. Everyone is painted in a myriad different strokes of the same brush.

E

veryone has a beginning and an end, and a broad space inbetween those lonely quotation marks for whatever merrymaking the imagination can conjure.

N

ot everyone has the same chances or the same tools. Not everyone has the same freedoms and securities, resources and rights. Some people’s stories are starless nights. There is despair and desperation. Oppression and inequality share the same miserable bed.

T

echnology is moving fast. The earth is groaning under our weight. Awareness is spreading like wildfire. Happiness is a pleasant plague that outwits the soulless thugs. The helmet clad henchmen sent from below to secure the treasury are crumbling under independent action that evolves from within communities.

E

veryone is in it together and we are all coming screaming out of our mothers and demanding more.

I

’m pretty sure it was meant to be this way.
