veritas vos liberabit

the only life worth living is one that is truthful to yourself

“Confront the dark parts of yourself,
work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness.
Your willingness to wrestle with your demons
will cause your angels to sing.” (August Wilson)

a week before you broke up with me
you admitted your depression had reared up
making you withdrawn, distant
short-tempered and confused

you said you didn’t want to talk about it
because doing so made it real
as if you could make a chemical imbalance
cease to exist
simply by ignoring it

the weakest thing in the world is pretending.
the truth will set you free
