I have always been drawn to this quote, but have related to it more these past few days as I reflect on my last 20 years....wondering if I kept the promise I made to an angel...have I become a good man?
"He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of the pain of being a man." -Hunter Thompson.

This is dedicated to those of us who still fight personal demons every day. No matter how alone you feel and hopeless it seems, someone understands....someone cares. Seek help, seek support. Every life is worth living.

"I laugh to keep from crying, I smile to mask the pain. If I have given you my love it is genuine as trust does not come easy for me. My pain is magnified by scars of the past."

Strength.
Focus.
Determination.
Each day a battle,
Though the war
Will never be won.
The only victory
Is waking up
Each day to fight.
Celebrate.
Succeed.
Let your vengeance
Upon the demons
Be a life
Well lived.
Thrive.
Prosper.
Power and strength
Are within you.
Dream.
Achieve.
Find your path.
Find any reason.
Find your life.
