“Then I remembered. I remembered watching life from the outside. I remembered wanting to live, but being afraid. It was as if there was a person inside me waiting to be born. He looked like me, but I knew he was very different. He would not be invisible. He would be more than just a […]

“People are afraid of themselves, of their own reality; their feelings most of all. People talk about how great love is, but that’s crap. Love hurts. Feelings are disturbing. People are taught that pain is evil and dangerous. How can they deal with love if they’re afraid to feel? Pain is meant to wake us […]

“In the moment when I truly understand my enemy, understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him.” Sacrifice is a concept that has been wildly romanticized in our culture; Leo’s dying, blue body floating in the Atlantic as he gives up his life for the woman he […]

Off in the distance Bloodied but wise As you squint with the light of the truth in your eyes And I saw you Both hands were raised And I saw your lips move in praise And I saw you steady your gaze For the finish line Every idol like dust A word scattered them all […]

Nobody will create an internal personal code of ethics or morals that they are incapable of reaching or attaining. To the writer of the law, all is acceptable and/or permissible so long as it is justifiable. It is only within an external set of moral boundaries that we are held to standards higher than what […]
