    to love giving it the keys to our city
    carrying candles to it and incense

    to be forgiven
    Why do we look for it and endure
    all that it does to us
    all that it does to us?"

    I’m rubbish at Tumblr, so I have no idea when I got this - when did you send it, and why as anonymous? Where’s the quote from, or is it an anonymous original? I felt a little speechless at reading it - it’s so honest, which is so rare.
