“The killer in me is the killer in you. Send this smile over to you.”
-William “Billy” Corgan
Thank you for:
being you, so that I can be me.
the sparkle in your eyes that illuminates the fire in mine.
the dirt on your face so that I can see the smudges when I look upon my reflection.
the pain that you have endured, so that I can learn the most to thrive from my own.
the joy in your heart, to light the joy in mine.
your homelessness, so that I can experience where I have felt overlooked, abandoned and alone.
your palatial estate, so that I can see all of the places where I live in abundance.
“Our lives are not our own. From womb to tomb, we are bound to others. Past and present. And by each crime and every kindness, we birth our future.”
– Somni-451 Cloud Atlas
Thank you for:
your smile, so that I can see my own.
lighting your own trail, so that I can light my own.
being a warrior, so I can pick up my sword and fight my fights.
your beauty and sensuousness, so that I can experience my own inner Goddess.
following your intuition, so that I can hear and follow my own.
your outrage and foolishness, so that I can better seek out mine.
loving yourself, so that I can learn to love my-self.
“You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”
So in return, my dearest loves, I:
look closely at my shadow instead of turning away, so that you may face yours without fear in your heart.
love myself more deeply, to light the spark to your own self-love.
walk in courage across hot coals, the anger I have held against myself, to help you to forgive your own trespasses.
run free, so that you can find that which frees your heart.
light the torch of my truth, to help you to find the spark of your own voice.
learn to trust myself, to help you to find your confidence.
learn to swim through my emotions, to allow you to keep afloat in yours.
Thank you, my dear for being you, so that I can be me.
