PASSIONATE LADY, GIVE UP YOUR VOWS

Indulge in what’s before you.  The only limitations are those you place upon yourself.

You’ve played the game well, but it didn’t yield the promised results.  You did what you were told, obeyed the rules of society and kept a low profile.  It was all sawdust in the end.

And you blamed yourself for years.  If only you had worked a little harder, sacrificed a little more, ruminated a little less…

But you forgot that you were partnered in the dance, not whirling around solo.  You weren’t expected to carry the load for another.

If you hadn’t been absorbed in redressing the imbalance, you would have learned the corrections were not yours to make.

Instead, you saw only your own shortcomings and vowed never to visit them upon an innocent again.

But their inactions are not those of innocence.  And withholding your participation is needless.

Live your life without apology, lady and forget about fixing the ruin of others.  Save your own city.
