entry arrow10:27 PM | Finding the Right Punctuation Mark

Sometimes you have to refuse to be the court jester with the bag of tricks. Everyone's laughing, but you keep the privacy of the tears nobody else sees. Sometimes you have to refuse to be forever the fool for love. Sometimes you will have to strike out on that unknown road leading to God-knows-where, and see where the rest of the days will take you. Sometimes you have to accept that chapters end, and poetry often comes to a full stop, with no enjambment to take you to the next line. Sometimes life is not all about commas, or ellipses, or exclamation marks. Often, there are the questions marks as well. But when all that you are feels the finite appropriateness of a period, embrace it. There is beauty in stopping, and in letting go of all that finally does not matter.
