Favorite Quote:
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, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn't serve the world. There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is 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.
-Marianne Williamson

Seeing as how you and your people want an apology
Here it is, I hope it makes you happy

I’m not going to apologize because you told me lies
You didn’t love me, hurt me and made me cry
I’m not going to apologize for your pretense caring
And all your outrageous lying
I’m not going to apologize because I couldn’t take it no more
And I wanted out
I’m not going to apologize because you can’t handle the truth
That you’re just making my life worse
I’m not going to apologize because you think I’m disrespectful
Because I think as a father you’re utterly and completely dreadful
I won’t apologize because I wanted this to stop
But I will apologies because I let it start

So there is my apology
With it I hope you’re happy
Because you won’t get anything more
I don’t care what anyone else has to say
Because it won’t change the fact that,
As a father 0 is still your score!
