I am a shadow becoming a star, rising from stagnant filth to become more than what I was . Finding that internal fire melts the Icy prison which we call fear, and momentum carries us past the self that we prop up and say "this is me" to bring us to the self that is, the one that is both you, me and everyone else. I let that fire warm me when I am cold, and light my way when I feel surrounded by the darkness of insecurity. For I know that the fire is me.
I thought I knew much, that I was learned, but to just listen and not apply the lessons that life seeks to teach is to let the mind atrophy and all the knowledge you have gathered will be buried under thoughts of self satisfaction and habit. Such is counter productive to say the least.
I know now, that I am still a child in such things, but do not mistake that admission for a thing of weakness. A child is pure potential, So I rejoice in being this child. I have much to learn, and so many ways to grow.
So I have passed my apathy, and shall keep moving on this path. I look forward to seeing you on it as well.
