be careful not to become

someone’s project of


for there are those who

find a way to fill themselves

(the hole so deep & bleeding)

up by taking care of another

in such a manner that attachments

may form between

the project & the project

coordinator (PC)---

where there had not been a

hole, now one can be drilled

so as to make the two


where the PC

needs the project to fulfill them


the project becomes

dependent on the agency of the

PC, forgetting themselves,

forgetting their own individuality in

the process &

if the project does not come to

fruition in exactly the way that

the PC sees fit,

they may throw a tantrum,

which minutes ago

did not seem possible,

because they had been looked up

to, they had been admired,

they had been thought to be



capable of sustaining positive

change inevitably?


ahh, but they were only human

the whole time.
