Because what was and what could have been are parallel realities.
Because the fallout from your mistakes have produced malignant outgrowths.
Because absolutes and gray areas are cocktails of alcoholic confusion.
Because in games of truth, the odds have been unfavorable.
Because we have built wastelands in each other’s souls.
Because fragmented negatives have no meaning to the whole.
Because histories are egoists and optimism is for masochists.
