100 Word Challenge

There's no such thing.

How can you say that? That's so cynical.

Look around you. Crime, corruption, greed and avarice are everywhere.

Not everywhere. Not everyone is that way.

Now you're being foolish. If that's what you believe, you're setting yourself up.

Setting myself up for what?

Betrayal, exploitation, high interest rates ... who knows?

Why are you being so cynical? This isn't you.

Yes. This IS me. This is me pissed. This is me tired of it all.

What ALL?

Politics, Wall Street, Credit Cards and the inertia of it all.


Inertia. No Change. No honor and no change.

Good one. You've captured the cynical hearts of many. Hopefully, the hearts of the cynical can survive by riding on the hearts of the hopeful.

Tara R. said...

Cynicism is spreading, and you captured that frustration perfectly.

Well said...have heard variations of this many times...even thought it myself once or twice.

I'm fed up with the very same things, and not sure at all why we're putting up with it.

Still, I don't get cynical. I know too many good people. :)
