"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, talented?' 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 others won't feel insecure around you. We were all meant to shine as children do. We were all born to make manifest the glory of God that's within us - it's not just in some of us, it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
-Nelson Mandela

This is my song
When failure is here,
When the night is so dark,
And my eyes have to tear.

When the dark leads the lonesome
And heart sore to sing,
When the sad come to face
Their dearest dark thing.

Then I'm here with you
Though the devil pursue,
Though the light seems to fade,
And your sadness seems true.

Lift your head, may you know
That I'm always with you.
Then the night seems so bright-
When My Love surrounds you.
