The Angel Axis Intersects The Three-Dimensional Human

Who I wanted to be is not who I am.
Who I am is not who I wanted to be.
         The great ethical dilemma: free will versus fate.
It is not one, but both. And therein lies betrayal, the deepest of sin,
and longing, the emptiest of delight.
         To acknowledge both have equal claim on your soul
is to cast your vote with one or the other.
Which am I going to let my life be lead by?
is what you will ask at each turn.

And you will answer according to your experience.
And there will be betrayal if you answer wrongly
and longing for the "what-ifs" if you answer correctly.

I am fragile as glass,
an angel lost to the depths
on my way home,

a beam of broken light
shooting outwards in all directions
with no direction or destination.

  1. A beam of broken light. Yes. To be conscious is to be broken.
