If you chase two rabbits, you will lose them both.
- Native American proverb

Do not go gentle into that good night but rage, rage against the dying of the light.
- Dylan Thomas

What is past is past -- it is the present and the future that concern us.
- Hiawatha, founder of the Iroquois Confederacy


I’m here living and breathing

You’re over there just seething

Because I wouldn’t let you break me

Because I wouldn’t let you take me

You acted as if I were yours

I stood there frozen as your hands explored

You caused me so much pain

In those nights I thought I’d never see again

But it replays in my mind every night

It’s time I go back to stand and fight

I won’t let you haunt me anymore

I’m done with this fear that I can’t ignore

I’ve carried this burden for far too long

It’s time you know what you did was wrong
