Favorite Quote:
Age is irrelevant, because time is just a measurement!

I'm content to sit beside,
Incline my head and patiently hide.
Never asked what's inside.
Because only the outside reminds
That all of the outward signs
Cannot be confined in the body of one in denial.
I'm more free than you'll ever be!
But your first words are to say that I am false,
As if this whole life was an act, instead of moving towards something that is closer to reality.
How many Oscars would I be the recipient of if your words held any substance?
To say I am such a liar is your way of deftly twisting the truth that's left.
Find me when you have discovered the tenderness that lies within us all.
I'm more free than you'll ever be!

The author's comments:
I think anyone who has struggled with this particular issue will understand the underlying tones. I have recently accepted something that everyone around me has preached denial about my entire life.
And I have an inner contentment that I have never felt before.
But whatever meaning and comfort you can obtain from it, I hope that you feel a little better knowing that truth isn't always what someone else tells you.
