The Relationship Built on a Single Note of Forbidden Truth

The beautiful, young, high-powered, multi-millionaire corporate attorney walked up to the homeless old man huddled in a corner of the train station. He was always there, in the same spot. She always walked by that same spot, talking loudly into her cell phone, vehemently declaring how she was going to destroy that guy or that company or her tennis match opponent. The homeless old man heard it all, for 10 seconds, twice a day, monday through friday, once at 8:00 AM, and again at 5:30 PM, for years.

They had never spoken a word to each other. But on this day, at 8:00 AM, the homeless old man had thrust a piece of paper into her hand as she passed by. Terrified, she grabbed and mindlessly it shoved into her purse, not looking at it until hours later.

Now, tears flowed down her face as she walked up to the homeless old man. She squatted and fiercely made eye contact. A sob strangled her voice as she cried out, oblivious to all gaping passers-by: “Thank you for knowing me!!”

The note read: “I Know This World Has Destroyed You. It Has Destroyed Me, Too. Together, We Are Victims.”

    1. You’re welcome.

      I always do exactly and only as I choose. The opinions of others play no role in Me deciding what to do, how to do it, when to it, where to do it, etc… So it has always been, and so it will always be. I like my universe of freedom of mind choice, that’s just Me. 🙂

      1. Absolutely, absolutely. I think I just can’t cope with anything in between. I liked your twitter posts, that were super crammed because of the letter restriction, and I like long “blog” posts. I should check IdeaPod though, it’s been a while. I think I was one of your first subscribers 🙂

      2. I admire you for standing up for yourself, because I struggle with this all the time, out of fear of hurting others feelings, so I remain silent and not express my true feelings. Nice!!
