A superhero without tights
would be half naked.
An uncomfortable situation such as this
could have been avoided
had you, Mr. Superhero, not gotten dressed
in the dark.

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, handsome, 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 is nothing enlightened about shrinking
so that other people won't feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine, as children do.

We were born to make manifest the glory of God within us.
It is not just in some; it is in everyone.

And, as we let our own light shine, we consciously give
other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our fear,
our presence automatically liberates others."
Marianne Williamson

I love this. It is sweet sincere and humorous. Yet it also deep and ironic in the best way.

I'll walk forever with stories inside me that the people I love most can never hear.

Everyone says it's funny, but I honestly feel as though it's a lot deeper than anyone can see. "Would be half naked" and "not gotten dressed in the dark" sound to me like saying, if you hadn't lied and kept a facade going, you wouldn't feel quite so terrible when the truth is revealed.

Wow. I cannot believe there aren't more comments on this piece. I love the thought behind it - very deep. It honestly really takes the same old tired theme that alot of poetry contains today and spins it in such a way that it is no longer old and tired. "An uncomfortable situation such as this..." -- I love it.
