Something quite true…
“When I was little and running on the race track at school, I always stopped and waited for all the other kids so we could run together even though I knew (and everybody else knew) that I could run much faster than all of them! I pretended to read slowly so I could “wait” for everyone else who couldn’t read as fast as I could! When my friends were short I pretended that I was short too and if my friend was sad I pretended to be unhappy. I could go on and on about all the ways I have limited myself, my whole life, by “waiting” for people. And the only thing that I’ve ever received in return is people thinking that they are faster than me, people thinking that they can make me feel bad about myself just because I let them and people thinking that I have to do whatever they say I should do. My mother used to teach me “Cinderella is a perfect example to be” but I have learned that Cinderella can go fuck herself, I’m not waiting for anybody, anymore! I’m going to run as fast as I can, fly as high as I can, I am going to soar and if you want you can come with me! But I’m not waiting for you anymore.”

I’ve been silent coz i thought my talking will hurt people, i’ve been patient coz i thought expressing myself will influence people, I’ve been forgiving coz i acknowledged that people can commit mistakes… but then i remember telling this to one of my friends “To err once is human, to err twice is still human, to err again and again is foolishness. To forgive once is divine, to forgive twice is dog like, to forgive always is blindness.”
I have been erring too much and forgiving too many errs.. Guess it’s time to shut up and be loud and say, “Well FTW!!! ”
“No man is an islande.. ” said John Donne once… I think i’m fed up of being an archipelago or the mainland for that matter. I might be wishing for something that could be dangerous. But if i have to sacrifice so much not being an Islande, that i’d have to literally wipe off the smile from my face for days.. I’d rather be an islande.. and smile..
Bye the Bye…
Drink me up hearties!!! Savvy!!!!! ???
