They sell us scenarios
We may think we’re getting a Wall
Or forgiven loans.
But what we get is the illusion of safety
The feeling of security and support.
Because they want us to think we need them.
When most things are fine enough
Before our minds start chattering with worry.
Because story tellers paint a dangerous world.
But the true danger is believing them
And giving them more control
So they can take care of us.
Real leaders empower you to do things.
They don’t take power in order to do so.
Fairy tales are nice.
But they aren’t the foundation of living life.
