Writing Lines

I will not revise history.
I will not revise history.
I will not cross out whole paragraphs of my journal.
I will not edit with twenty-twenty hindsight.
I will not attempt to project infallibility.

I will remember that,
no matter how crafty or well-intentioned,
revisionist historians will always be found out,
picked apart, or worse-
dismissed as mere aesthetics and fiction.

One dark truth is more valuable to the future
than a collection of happy hollow fabricated depictions.
I will not revise my history.
