The Fool

by Andrew Leake


Chapter 44

1 in a 1,000,000. 2 for the price of 1. Dimwitted and reimbursed.

What if the other side of the Moon was full of human sized tarantulas?

I didn’t make the rules I just follow them. I get up early and shave my back even though I have no back hair. People stare at me and I stare right back.

The lady doth protests too much, me thinks.

1 in a 1,000,000. When the curtains are drawn and the scene is finished the actors return to their domains. When there is no show there is no play, no tomfoolery and no messing around.

Life isn’t enough. You need passion to make yourself whole again. You can out fool a fool but you can’t befriend a stranger. Things will reach their shelf-life whether you like it or not. You might succeed but to achieve your aims you must assume that the worst is yet to come.

I don’t take pleasure from being scorned I simply await with baited breath for the final scene to end. The forced smile and the lively eyes. I juggle all my problems all at once. If there is an answer it will arrive. Don’t wait to find the real person inside of you. I don’t care what others think and I ignore all the fakes. I want to fly and to be with the wind just like my Father once said. Ignorance is folly.

What I have is a story that’s not been told. Once you find the words to utter out your emotions then you’ll feel fine. Express yourself and be yourself only. Show the world your true self. There are no regrets but just the promise of a better tomorrow. You can’t change something which can’t be altered. Try again and I’m sure you will succeed. Mistakes are OK. Trust me I’ve made thousands. At the end of the day you’ll find yourself don’t worry. Whoever you are and who you were before doesn’t matter.

Be yourself you’ll find your way.

You’ll see, don’t worry.
