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 does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were 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 listen to the fog horns blow
As I lie awake at home
The plays I've learned to love so well
The place that I have grown
Many a days I've spent alone
Pondering on which this life I live
And its future that is unknown
Those who try to seek its path
Get lost amongst the mist
And are only shown the way back out
By the horns that guide their ships

"You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams."

I really like your poem! The rhythm of it is perfect, and you manage to rhyme just enough without it getting too much (like rhyming sometimes can be). "And the future that is unknown/Those who try to seek its path/Get lost amongst the mist." :] <3 If you have time (sorry) could you come comment on my writing!!! THX!!!!!!!!
