"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


I think I was doomed from birth.
When the nurse couldn’t pick me out from that night’s batch and my mother first cooed, “It’s a girl!”
Doomed to insignificance,
Destined to hover at the edges of others’ lives
A name, a cardboard cutout
I don’t think I even left footprints in the snow.
But now I have my own chunk of world –
No mothers or sisters or wives down here –
Dying may be the most significant thing I ever did.
