You’re Allowed to Wait

You’re certain you felt the exhilaration coursing through your veins, the symphony resounding the halls of revelation. What else would have made you run up that mountain in the middle of the night and scream into the brisk night, shattering the silence. The words you spoke, the source…

It’s Impossible to know

If I were to ask you to name the one thing you’re most familiar with what would you say? It’s something you look at everyday and will for the rest of your life. You scrutinize it and analyze every inch of it. You know every blemish and every…

“Are you trying your best? “ “…Well, I can probably do better.” There are piles and piles of corruptible material you have on yourself that would condemn you if you said otherwise. Just this morning you woke up at 5am like you planned and then went straight back to sleep,…

courage

Ready. Set. Courage.

Take a world class long-jumper and place him in the ocean and he won’t jump any higher than an infant whose legs have only just learned to stand. Take the most brilliant jewel that imprisons the eyes of the greedy and the souls of the lustful and cast…

I’ll Ask So You Can Talk
