They say hope is the quintessential human illusion.
I would challenge it if only I disagree.
This time I refuse to drown in illusion.
This time I choose to wallow in reality.
Even if my reality will bring me a package of regret,
I will accept it and tear it open with my bare hands.
I may hurt myself when I do that but it will be trivial.
I won't allow myself to hurt as much over the same reason.
For the first time was quite deep, this time it will just be a scratch.
It's the new year and it's the new me.
Hello, I am Joaqui.
