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?' 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

The very way he looks at her,
The same- my look towards him.
Triangularly trapped inside emotion,
A turbulence raging within.

i only want to have his friendship,
Perhaps a little more,
But shunned I am, his arm around her,
Each night my heart feeling sore.

Why can't I let go of him?
Why can't I stop this now?
But curtain falls, I have lost,
And it's time for final bows.
