I tried to believe in the pretty lies that comfort of, but faith and fiction will appease a sharp mind for only so long. I refuse to live my life on my knees, waiting for salvation that will never come. And I will not forfeit control because I don't have a life to waste. I tried to find peace in a promise carefully designed to placate and pacify, to assuage the fears that haunt our lives. But I refuse to let doctrine dictate morality as we bow to masters of our own design. And I will not accept false truths because I don't have a life to waste. That book is not enough for me.
