can we get along?

I can’t live like this anymore. It’s too loud and obnoxious. They say it’s their right. No consideration for others. Their way or highway. I can’t shout at them like they do at anybody who opposes. I can’t bombard them despite the fact they bombard me. I don’t believe in “an eye for an eye.” There should be a peaceful solution to all of this. But, what is it? I don’t know. It’s been intense so long that I’m getting tired and numb. I just want to end this. I think I’m going to jump.

    Sadly jumping makes them laugh, it’s better to tune the piano and play again..

  3. What a wonderful take on the prompt, Nelkumi! I really liked the character’s internal monologue, and then the “jump.” 🙂
