Marionette

I never liked watching the marionette shows as a child.

I always regarded those puppets, even though smiling, as unhappy.

Maybe it was because I hated seeing them attached to strings that dictated their every jolted and staggering move.

The squeaky, animated voice of their puppeteer only heightened my unease. Anything unnatural always set me off and still does.

Now, two decades later, I’m still watching these marionette shows, unwillingly.

They’re all around me.

Only this time.. I can’t see their strings.

    Fica a pergunta:
    Será que é possível nos livrar
    de todas cordas que nos
    prendem?
    Tudo de bom para você

      Sim, é possível.
      Mas dependendo da sociedade em que você vive, você pode ser rotulado como a ovelha negra.
