I know more than I let on,
but I can’t stand the way people reply with arguments based solely on rhetoric, so
sometimes I keep quiet.
People argue even if they agree,
it always comes down to who
has the better reason to believe,
who has the stories that stand out in a world
where pain and struggle have become the last competition
and the only way we can prove ourselves
is to either have gone through more hurt, or
at least know someone else who’s done more.
