She had wished so very hard to be more:

more beautiful, more brilliant, more interesting.

But as she grew, she was appalled to realize

how very little she had wished to be less:

less angry, less impatient, less unkind.

 

And she came to believe that her purpose was

to set this temporary world on fire:

to shine with compassion even in the darkest of times,

and to love so fiercely and fearlessly

that no one else would ever

have to wonder if they were

enough.
