i live in a cave
but i’m cool with it…
i can clean up nicely
why is everyone so surprised by that?
i wonder how long it will take
for my guilt to consume me
it just… happened.
i love history
because we’re making people immortal
by learning about them
and studying them
and being tested on them
we’re keeping them alive.
i hate history
because we don’t always do justice
to the people in the past
and what they did
and who they were
we just learn the most important things.
i want more
i want to live in their time period
and do the things that they did
and get to know them personally
so i can make my own memories of them.
i want to think about seward
and remember how we once through a party together
because our birthdays are on the same date
i don’t want to remember “seward’s folly”
he doesn’t deserve that
he was so much more.
