be the best you can be, do the best that you can. you will emerge self-empowered. reach for that inner strength, whose existence you have denied for so long. it is there, waiting for you.
when the smoke finally clears, and the ashes cool, you will stand strong and whole. the world within you will open the world without...you will be able to accept love, that which you feel, that which is felt for you.
your struggle is a journey. you can chose your final destination. chose wisely, with your head and heart. if you stumble along the way, get up, dust off the dirt and move on.
the rainbow lies ahead....
