Favorite Quote:
"The Dark is generous, and it is patient, and it always wins, but in the heart of its strength lies weakness: One lone candle is enough to hold it back.
Love is more than a candle.
Love can ignite the stars." -Matthew Stover

I will right this wrong.
This injustice needs to die now. Before it worsens--
Before it's too late.
I must be strong for those who

I must stand,
Or others I love
--They--will take the fall.
Standing straight, head up,
Looking forward, I march on.
Breathe in, out.
In. Out.
Taking a deep breath;

walking another step.

My mind mumbles I am right.
--It tells me I am strong.

Keeps me moving,

...I am confident.
I am confident

--The thought, quiet
Echos over and again.

..I continue....

When I come to the problem,

--I snap.
"I must stand strong" says my head.

The words waver.

Finally falter

in a moment time...
My lip quivers, vibrates a
constant up and down.

--I can't help it.
I can't stop.
Tears run down,
gather in the corners of my eyes.
I quiver,
I cry,

I crumble,

Shattered to pieces.
I break.
The pain leaks through the cracks in my broken heart.
My mind whispers to me what it has whispered all this time,

Only now do I hear.
"You must be strong--
You are broken,
Others are breaking,
Being shattered.
They need help.
You help them....

"You needed help,

No one did.

No one.
--You know how it feels. "

The author's comments:
After the first time you are broken and just begin to heal.
Sometimes you feel whole, but there are always those times when you fall apart anyway.
Even when sometimes you try to be strong, you just can't.
Tears bring you back to that first
time, that first hurt and pain.
Pain builds character.
It teaches.
It returns.
And we cry.
