The Gorge

Can I come with you? Rage says.

Can I? asks Blame.

No, I say. It is best I go on this journey alone. You will weigh me down.

But … Rage and Blame say.

Remember what Matthew said: It is best to travel lightly.

You will be lonely, they say.

It is better to be lonely than to hear you two bickering constantly on the road.

Don’t say it, they say.

Like two snarling dogs ….

You said it, they say. You did not have to say it.

Goodbye faithless companions. You will find your own way now. I am sure you will find other hapless souls to team up with.

With that I climb my way up the gorge ….. and am gone.
