Society sired my psych ward origami.
Briefly explained, what I am trying to say in this six word story is that society raised me in place of the father who wasn't there since I was four. It is also a blatant statement about how I feel about society right now in that it pretty much accustoms people to the feel of psych wards. That, and while I had my experience in there I found solace in my origami.

Words to know

sire - to procreate as the father.

That has the kind of power to stick with a person. Really make them think about it from time to time...

This is quite interesting. o.O

I like the direction and the originality of the concept. It's quite intense with the way you've included the 'psych ward' and then you contrast that with something so... light, I suppose, something clear/clean with 'origami', as if this was your only pure thing, the only right thing, perhaps...

Quite interesting, I have to say. :nod:

Thank you. =) The sentence was built up around the last three words.

=) I'm glad you think so. And congrats on being featured by DLD. You deserve it. And don't let me me forget, I've been meaning to reread the Guitar in Space story, I'm gonna go do that now. ;)
