Favorite Quote:
"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?' Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world; there is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's 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."
-Nelson Mandela


I'm sick of
People
Thinking they care
Thinking they know
Thinking they can help
Thinking they can cure
Think they even stand a chance
Against this.
They think too much.
Or maybe I just think
Too much.
This ache in my stomach
This deep lonely pain
Surges,
And reminds me
Of where I am
And where they are
Where he is
And where I must stay.
Nothing is normal now
Nothing could ever go back to how it was
Nothing could replace
Repair
Restore
Nothing could cloud the stare
Of hopeless zeal
Too quick
Not thinking
And now
Thinking too much.
