Be thankful? Really?


Sometimes, when I rant... when I complain... when I feel burdened by overwhelming problems... some well-meaning friends would come to me... try to console me and say... “You should be thankful. Others have it worse.”

I know they mean well... but really?

Be thankful?

I feel sorry for them that they may be burdened too... and yes, maybe they have it worse. But be thankful that I am not where they are? Be thankful that they have it worse?

I don’t think so.

Let Him Fly


Let Him Fly
by Royverine


Don’t hold his wings
Let him fly
For wings are made
So birds can fly
Don’t let him fear the wind
Teach him how to glide
Trust you’ve shown enough
Trust you taught him enough
It’s how it should go
You can’t hold him forever
Let go
Let him fly

The world is full of proud people

The world is full of proud people. People who think that they are the only one who are doing the right thing... people who believe that the world owe them reverence... people who act like that they are always right and are the one whose voice should be heard.

Righteous, selfish, and self-centered people.

They are all around us... THEY ARE ALL AROUND ME!

What's even worse is when you are caught between two self-righteous individuals. You just want to get out and let them make a mess of themselves.

I've got troubles of my own. Spare me your differences.
