You're stronger than you think.
Strength. It’s a strange thing. People talk about it all the time. They tell you to be strong, that together we are strong, that if you are strong, you can get through anything. What they don’t tell you, is that when you’re alone, it’s hard to be strong. Being a human being is an amazing thing. We get to experience so many wonderful things that other creatures...
I wonder how it is to fly Like someone who is quite so high Who marches to his drugged out beat And trips upon his own two feet His conscience may have let him live But how much time will people give For the social invalid His vapid stare is set in place His ego plastered on his face His life forgotten,his pride disgraced He barters not what he does well,he uses what he cannot sell And...
