Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
-Marianne Williamson


I'll save the world
Single handedly if I have to
You can choose to help
Or step back and watch what I do

I’ll be like Robin Hood
Steal from the rich and give to the poor
The right people will have the money
So there'll be no more war

I’ll feed and care for the poor
Just like mother Theresa
Except I’ll do it world-wide
Not just in India

I’ll be better than dr. house
No one will die from caner again
I’ll find a cure for it all
So you won't have to die in pain

As for racism
I’ll do what Dr.King Jr and Mahatma failed to
I’m like the guy from unbreakable, you can't kill me
Until I’m done with what I came to do

I might not get this done all at once
There’s so much crime
That I might not get it done today
But I’ll save the world, one step at a time
