Becoming

i wish i was as fearless as i think i am, or as i think i might. but sometimes, apathy just gets in the way. i thought it was fear. i realized, it was just apathy. i care only to a point. i haven't gone yet fighting for a cause to the point of activism. at 38, i have no real cause to fight for except for those i join to in facebook. but somehow, i wish i had the same courage as my good friends linda and stephii, and that guy named harvey keh. theirs is the courage that i haven't mustered even now, at 38. i think it's time to howl.
