Its like
they think we have
all of these unlimited choices.

But really,
its like
you open the menu
and there is only one thing there
and the choice is:
take it or
nothing.

Its like
riding on a train
instead of driving a car;
you just have to go
wherever it takes you
or else you just
stop.

Its like
they think you should
be able to do
whatever they decide.

But really,
its like
you are walking a tightrope,
just barely keeping your balance
and then someone else
climbs on your shoulders
and you have to
make sure that you
take care of them
as well.

Its like
they make all the rules
about what is right
and expected
based on their
experience and
their ideas of
normal.

And
they have no idea
what its really like.

So true they ( T,Wife,friends,father,mother,brother,sister) don't really know but we do and that's all that counts.
We can have love and compassion for the self but it's a hard choice easier said then felt.
