I am my own religion,
My own savior.
I string my life from the loom of unadulterated independence.
Innocence is my first, middle, and last name.
Lies are my currency.
Hope is my drug.
Love is my intoxication.
The world is my paradise.

I inhale tomorrow and exhale yesterday.
I play with the toys of my imagination.
My soul holds the world together.

I fight for the right to be
The right to abet the enemy,
Yet bide by the tidings of sterling hearts,
And see the cessation of all humanity.

oh . my . gawd . Lindley this is absolutely incredible!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it! It's like you seriously just blew my mind! It fits completely with your personality, and yet at the same time if I didn't know you I would be able to take it and form my own meaning from it. Absolutely breath-taking <3
