Today, I’m hungry and I’m ready for change
I run too far to still be the same
See who I was I give him away
Today, No longer bound by what people say
I know that I will make mistakes
I fall but I refuse to stay
I’ve been waiting all my life to get to the door
And now it’s time to help someone see they’re alive for so much more

What screws us up the most in life is the picture in our head of how it’s supposed to be. Unknown
The beauty and brutality in humanity is manifest in the world we both nurture and destroy. For us, to free ourselves from the violence of the past, each of us must celebrate the beauty we can find in the present.
But if we are bold enough, each of us, to find the splendor in ourselves, in our present, then we forge the civilization that we were born to create.
