This writing was motivated by some tough times I was going through. It is honest and I put a lot of feelings into it.

Blinded

The people we hang out with cannot always be trusted. Therefore we are blinded. The things we do are not always the things we want to do. Therefore we are blinded. People manipulate us and lie to us everyday. Therefore we are blinded. You cannot always be the person you want to be. Therefore we are blinded. Man's laws cannot protect us from everything. Therefore we are blinded. Sometimes we get tricked into acting like fools. Therefore we are blinded. Things are not always what they seem. Therefore we are blinded. We get used, taken advantage of, lied to, dragged around, proven wrong, humiliated, stamped on and abused. Therefore we are blinded. Simplicity is what most of us want but cannot have. Therefore we are blinded. We don't always get to make our own choices. Therefore we are blinded. We don't always get to go where we want to go. Therefore we are blinded. An easy decision to make is never easy. Therefore we are blinded. We cannot always be on time, or be right, or be in a good mood, or eat our favorite food. Therefore we are blinded. Everything is hard before it becomes easy. Therefore we are blinded. Victory comes with a price. Therefore we are blinded. It doesn't take a big person to hurt your feelings. Therefore we are blinded. The world is not always on your side. Therefore we are blinded. Sometimes we just don't want to have fun. Therefore we are blinded. To get where you want to go in life requires some sacrifices. Therefore we are blinded. What are we blinded from? The truth about the unknown. That's just the point though. It will never be known. Therefore we are blinded.

So full of truth. You seemed to write more journal or short story type in the beginning. This was a great piece.

Take Care,
Ana

As you can see I like to mix up the styles. I'm glad you noticed the contrast from the earlier stuff and I'm glad you found it interesting. I'm never content with staying the same
