“If I speak in the tongues of angels, but have not love, I'm only a resounding noise , If I have the gift of knowledge, And if my faith moves mountains high, But have not love I am nothing… Though I know the One, Who holds the stars in the heavens, In the palm of His hand, If I give all I possess , To the poor and the helpless, I'll still gain nothing, Without love… Love's patient, True love is always kind, Love does not envy, Never brags, it's never proud, Slow to wrath, it keeps no records of wrongs against friends, Love forgives… It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.” (1 Corinthians 13:1-5,7)
“If the world hates you, remember that it hated Me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.” John 15:18-19
"The world is not respectable; it is mortal, tormented, confused, deluded forever; but it is shot through with beauty, with love, with glints of courage and laughter; and in these the spirit blooms..." ~ George Santayana


Have you ever been
In that place
Where nothingness resides, and in fact thrives?
Where the lies infest,
Infect all that you thought you knew
Have you made it out?
To the light… the promise at the end of the tunnel
Just to find the labrinth of of complicated half truths,
That leave you reeling
Have you ever been to the place
Where the bottom is as high as you can go?
Where you’re nowhere near good enough
For what they all expect…
Do you believe it will all just go away?
If you hide in the recesses of your mind
Silently contemplating the truth in their eyes
Do you think you’ll maintain your sanity here?
Wrapped inside yourself…
But the whispers grow louder
Encroaching on your space
Crouching for attack
You see the truth reflected in the windows of their souls
Do you wonder if you’re the only one who sees?
The world will not get better if you hide,
Hiding is where everyone is,
Hide in the open for everyone to see,
Be original,
Don’t hide in the mask that screams 'I’m the same as them'
Be yourself
You can't buy that in any store!
And on your worst day
Smile
Because someone out there is fighting the same battle you are.

Have you ever had that feeling where no matter how hard you try, it's never good enough, or no matter how great your day went, you're still not happy. Those days when you feel like everyone hates you and you're not good enough? But you know that they are insecure in themselves as well... well this is what it's all about... So smile on your worst day... you never know :) it might be the only sunshine that person sees all day...
