Searching for Trouble


Chaos has been engraved onto the palm of your hand. You can no longer go about your day casually or unproblematic. The trouble that you once searched for has now began to search for you, and you feel as if you cannot escape it.

For reasons you can't seem to understand, things never seem to go your way. You are constantly tripping on your own shoe laces. You drop everything that you pick up. You catch the red lights that are always green, and you have convinced yourself that you can't catch a break.

I once tried to warn you of your ways. I tried to tell you to keep things simple and to avoid trouble whenever possible, but you were so certain of yourself and remained unteachable. Now it seems that your mind cannot function without mayhem and disorder. You must make an effort to unweave your web and seek simplicity. You must search for the light, rather then dwelling in the darkness. This is the only way that you will find peace.
