Do not look back and grieve over the past, for it is gone. And do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come. Live in the present and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering. - Ida Scott Taylor


Everynight i sit at my computer watching the minutes tick by,
and i try and i try to write something thats going to matter.
I have the thoughts in my head, and the fire in my soul,
but i also have a fear in my heart.
A fear of not being good enough,
a fear of failing.
I fear that what i write isnt what needs to be said.
Im scared about whether I matter.
Whether Im here for a reason or if im only hear to pass the torch of life to someone who will matter to the world.
I write these words,
and i feel these feelings only to hit the backspace button enough times for the words ive created to dissappear into my computer.
