Carving my way out of the concrete jungle

This double-edged sword is the only tool I have to cut through the fallacious foliage that has blocked the sunlight and stunted my growth.  Having faith means you have to face fear.  And, in a society that has grown as fearful as ours has, aversion and denial are so readily at hand, it is almost impossible to remember that faith even plays a role anymore.

I remember a time when I had faith.  And, I don’t believe it ever left.  It did become imprisoned.  Overshadowed by an environment of fear, I was indoctrinated to believe that no risk was acceptable.  I could only be free if I was tethered to a stable job, a home, a lifestyle.  Where is the logic in that?
