Dear world, we have some work to do.
I have been a bad man. But I am committed to becoming a good man.
There is a small irony in this - because anyone that knows me - knows that I am a good man.
And I am. I strive to be. And sometimes I fail.
So why have I been a bad man?
I have been a bad man because I want and cannot have. And so I take. Ishmael.
When I take, it hurts.
I attempt to balance my taking by giving. I see this as fair. But it is not.
It is not fair.
Taking. Still. Hurts.
Giving is fine.
The antithesis to taking, is leaving.
As love is the antithesis to selfishness.
And so, I will leave this here.
And with it, my love, become a leaver.
I will take no more.
With an open palm, I ask your forgiveness, and offer myself to you.
