some thoughts

Solitude
Peaceful whispers in the sea of human existence

Strength
Giving what you need to give when there is no way you can give it

Loneliness
Feeling alone in a crowd, feeling the need to be touched from the inside out.

Happiness
Sudden urge to fly

Forgiveness
Conscious choice to open your heart to someone you feel wronged by

Gratitude
Feeling your heart drown in the extremes of the emotional sea

Pride
Cursed thing that is the power behind, and the downfall of, many great men

Ignorance
Blindness in the face of a new obstacle

Stupidity
Selective blindness in the face of the same obstacle

Generosity
Giving more than you expect to get

Humanity
Constant change in the control and perception of power, either within yourself or within a greater purpose

Radical
A small amount of chaos meant to open the eyes of the sleeping public

Future
Unpredictable, fascinating, scary

Present
The past...
