A Word A Day

Chapter Text


Patience is thin.

Thin as a bord, thin as a spine, thin as a life. But it takes those things, doesn’t it? It takes and takes until it’s thin, as for some it started to think and round and plenty but as time goes on it becomes thin. People are always looking for a way to make things thin. Cars, phones, computers, competitors, children, Patience.

Why stretch it too far, why accelerate what we all know will happen regardless of whether you help it or not. 

Some people just want to make everyone go as mad like them. As thin as them. Want to watch the world tear and snap under the pressure. They don't understand why you would like to stay round and plenty, why would you not love to live without the pressure of that final push, that feeling that you stretched too far this time, that you stretched yourself a bit too much. 

But all they know is how to be thin. How to be on the brink. And i don’t think anyone's taught them how to be anything else.
