“What are men to rocks and mountains?”
― Jane Austen, Pride and Prejudice

Unveil the close-minded;
what you believe isn't always just
Never follow the role chosen for you;
it's your road to follow
Deny the safe path;
the quiet ones never make history
Even the score;
a challenge should always be accepted
Remember your muse;
humility is the key to success
Separate the truth from the voice;
the two don't always mesh
Tolerate everything;
forgiveness cleanses the soul
Announce through words
that which should be visible to all
Notice the marks of the hurt:
those in need of healing
Decide what you stand for;
forget the ignorance of others
Understand who you are
and help others to do the same.
