For Me, Please Be:

Be a beacon of rightness

saving me from drowning in a sea of wrong

Be an oasis of passion and intensity

beckoning to me from a world of mediocrity

Be the cry of reason

keeping me from the prison of an irrational life.

  2. This reminded me of something a child would say to his parents. I’m not sure why that was my first thought, but it was.

    The intensity of your cry for change is very moving. I could even “see” you in motion, actually breaking your chains of imprisonment from a world that never made sense. Most importantly, I saw your victory. Because your dared to cry!
