Stand up for what you believe in even if it means standing alone. -Andy Biersack

The rain falls,

And the water glistens.

The water lilies dance,

As the drops hit them.

The water talks,

In ripples from the impact.

To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

Oh my gosh, this is absolutely, beautiful! :) It's just perfect. This reminds me, of an event, which happened recently. It was when I saw lilies for the first time, haha. I wish I could've seen the lilies when itwas raining; that would've been awesome. :) This is just bso beautifully and wonderfully and talentedly and well-written.

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

This is so sincere and beautiful.
