I am a loser for writing this. But I was digging through my old stuff trying to find some decent lines (like I do sometimes when I am feeling lame) and I found one of my poems I wrote right after me and Caleb broke up.
And your comment said this at the end. "Cause i'm always here for you, perhaps not like them, but i'll ALWAYs be here, whether or not i like it sometimes, but i'll never leave you. And you'll do fine."
Funny how stuff works out sometimes right?
Once upon a time we thought this friendship would last forever, turns out it cant even span high school.
I sent you the gold on Gaia because I dont get on much anymore and so I decided to send it your way.
Hi, this reply is SUPER late, I'm sorry. It's been THAT long since I've logged in!
Anyway, you posted a comment asking my spiritual orientation in response to my poem, "Turn Back."
Well, you may have guessed I'm an atheist, devoutly so. I wrote that after a long talk with a depressed Christian friend who was beginning to question her faith. And while she was feeling vulnerable and it would have been so easy to change her mind right then and there, and make her agree with me, I couldn't bring myself to do it. I think the concept of God is primarily a coping mechanism, and the idea of a Creator is deeply comforting when no one else in your life is there for you. I also know the amazing feeling of connectedness and acceptance, however artificial, and how hard it was to give up. Atheism truly is a painful path to choose, but I think really, all religions (and nonreligions) are filled with doubt, struggle, and persecution. It's just a matter of choosing what's right for you. For her, I knew she couldn't hang on without God. And thus, "Turn Back" was born.
Don't worry about it. It's been taking me a long time to give you another comment as well. I've been working on tracking down, formatting, and putting up the begginning of a story I wrote 3 years ago. I finaly found it and am getting it up, so I'll be able to comment you soon.
Heh, once I'm out of my class, I'll read some of your stories as well. Hopefully you've got some nice fiction pieces. I tend to wander in non-fiction, but I'll give it a shot. Thanks for your time and I'm glad I understood your piece, for the most part.
