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.
