I’m going back to the start.
Back to not seeing a conspiracy in everything
but just enjoying other viewpoints.
Back to when I didn’t feel like I had to pick sides
because I didn’t know there were any.
Back to skipping over what I didn’t like
and checking back a few days later to find something I did.
Back to not holding grudges and forgiving meltdowns
because I am not immune to them myself.
Back to sharing and caring
instead of hoarding and dismissing.
Back to discussing Richard
instead of each other.
Back to when the word Fandom made me feel part of something
instead of trapped in something.
Back to light and laughter
instead of darkness and uncertainty.
Back to smiling
back to Richard
Back to the kind of person he’d be proud to know.
back to the start.
