Once you become real, you cannot become unreal.
It lasts for always.
Margery Williams, The Velveteen Rabbit
It's not easy being real
When you are real
you get bumped and bruised and bothered
You get lost and found and mystified
Ah, but once you are real, there is no turning back!
Because as George Bernard Shaw said
"Life is not about finding yourself
Life is about creating yourself"
So, you may as well keep it real
and that's poetiquejustis
Not that I have already obtained all this,
or have already been made perfect,
but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me
