"There are all kinds of courage. It takes a great deal of bravery to stand up to our enemies, but just as much to stand up to our friends." - Albus Dumbledore in Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone


When the world begins to crush you –
When your hands start creeping toward your throat –
Close your eyes, block it out
Nothing else to think about
but the feel of my hair and the touch of my hand –
Things no one else could understand.

When the world begins to shun me –
When my fingers start itching for a blade –
Please, close my eyes, block it out
Give me nothing else to think about
but the feel of your arms and the sway of your dance –
Things no one else could understand.

We’ll survive life’s cruel demands –
Things no one else could understand.
