The River Crossing

You have this fantasy that by giving up, you will succeed. That just as you finally give up, everything will somehow work itself out, that people will respond to some kind of humanness in your act of giving up.

But that’s not what’s going to happen. You're just going to give up, not as a performative act, not as a way to showcase your humanity, just because you simply cannot be the character you’ve played for as long as you have.

You are not redeeming yourself.

You are simply giving up.

No rising sun.

No blinding light.

I finished reading this this week, after 3 years I started reading in my spare time when I read you some poems in the BT album and when I saw in a part of the album that I quoted on your page. http://www.iwrotethisforyou.me / ..... and I was very motivated at all times of my life, when I finished reading all his publications ... I think this inspires me to continue ... this last poem! It inspires me not to be a coward and continue in my struggle! .... Thank you thank you thank you! never forget you

PS ... I think I'm the first person to read it from San Luis Potosí, Mexico.
