fidentia {f}

There once was a girl.
She was brought into her world by parents who loved her.
She had everything she needed to live a perfect life.
She was perfect.

There once was a girl.
She was brought into a world where a man reigned over all his loyal citizens.
A man who reigned over a world that had enough resources for everyone.
A man who reigned with the intention of a common wealth for everyone.
A man who reigned by giving everything in his world a comparable value.
A man who reigned by making people work for valuable things.

Go to sleep!

Embrace the darkness.
Accept that you are going to have to spend some time in silence with your thoughts.

“I wrote some raps that make sure that my lifeline

Reeking the scent of a reaper, ensuring that my allegiance

With the other side may come soon, and if I’m doomed

May the womb help my mother be blessed for many moons

I suffer a lot, and every day the glass mirror

Get tougher to watch; I tie my stomach in knots

And I’m not sure why I’m infatuated with death

My imagination is surely an aggravation of threats

That can come about, ’cause the tongue is mighty powerful

And I can name a list of your favorites that probably vouch

Maybe ’cause I’m a dreamer and sleep is the cousin of death

Really stuck in the schema of wondering when I’mma rest”
