You’re not doing your credibility any favors.
You built up this world.
You created this microcosm, and made me feel it was the only one.
Your system is dying.
Your system is breaking to pieces, and you aren’t fooling anyone anymore.
I should hate you for this. You built a world, and made me fiercely loyal to it.
I genuinely Loved you. I supported you. I am literally in debt to you.
But you aren’t fulfilling your end of the bargain.
You’re just going to lay down and bleed.
You’re just going to roll over and die.
That’s not what you taught me to do.
And I am just supposed to be content as you leave.
Prove me wrong.
You came from humble beginnings.
Maybe you went too far too fast.
Maybe you lost sight of your purpose.
Maybe I’m wrong, and it’s just time for you to flat-line and expire.
Maybe it’s good you’ve been forced to your knees.
Cut out the hindrances.
Shed off the tares.
Let the dross be blasted away.
Become something newer and better.
The crucible isn’t meant to destroy you.
It’s meant to make you what you are supposed to be.
I want to believe in what you helped create me to be.
I’m waiting for you to give me a reason to keep on.
Fortunately, there is something so much greater than you.
Fortunately, I don’t need you.
I do want you, but if you have to go, I’ll survive just fine.
I’ll miss you, but I’ll be okay.
I am not alone. You taught me that.
But this is where the gears of your conviction will be put to the test.
This is where you are put up to the wall, with the knife to your throat.
The whole world is watching. The whole world is watching as you choose.
Will you fight? Don’t resign yourself to a false fate.
Don’t fulfill the prophecy that everyone else is making.
We are watching. Remember that.
If something is worth believing in, it must be worth fighting for.
