In the service of Right….. the disservice of Wrong. 

To my past I am indebted, yet in pain. I have given all of myself, and asked for only a little bit of it back. For all that, I am broken, I am tattered, I am disheveled. I am, unforgiven. 

The silence is too much to listen to. The quiet is too much to brace for. The road away from home is always dark, the road home always bathed in sunlight.

What genetic task a man is born to do…..is. To that end, I thank the powers that be.

What a man is raised to understand is not necessarily what he will come to “Know”.

If just once in your life, you can “see” yourself…. Embrace it. 

If just once in your life you can lend your soul to a brother…..Embrace it.

If you find yourself in the darkness, unable to find your way home…..stop, remember, don’t be afraid, if you listen…very closely….Home will always call you towards the light.
