It was an idea. A seed planted in the dark corner of my mind.
The first spark of a fire that threatens to burn everything I take as certain.
Funny how an idea can simply take over me.
Out of fear, I lie to myself, I ilude myself to escape anything that might take me close to being sure.
But the truth is inevitable, because a lie is nothing more than a debt created with time.
And sooner or later, I will have to face the question.
In the meantime, I choose to live the ilusion.
