I should’ve studied the sciences if I wanted more definite answers. Although, amongst them, uncertainties exist. I’ve lived. I’ve traveled. Across the globe, here I am. Searching for answers to questions I’m not even sure of. But. I’m searching in all the wrong places. Naively believing that my heart lays at the shoreside. Exploring the forest, hoping that I discover something, something worthwhile. I look for my answers in people. People older than me. People smarter than me. People who at least, seem, to know, more than me. I study. For all my life, I’ve sat at a desk, studying. But, I don’t really seem to know more than I did before. I still study. I read. I search for my soul in other peoples’ text. The characters in the novels I read, I relate to them. The difference is, my life continues even after the book concludes. I’ve tried searching for life in you. I thought you could help me. I dig myself deeper into this hole, this pit that swallows me.

There were no witnesses called and there was no transcript of the trial details and black people were not allowed inside the courtroom during that time.
