Can’t fit a square peg in a round hole, a round peg in a square hole… You are not bound by shapes or the material world. Elevate yourself, transform yourself into what you want, what you need to be.
Society, Culture, and Religion all promote congregation and “herd” or “mob” mentality. Those who challenge the thoughts , beliefs, or theories of the mob are often ridiculed, demonized, and ostracized.
It is only the fool that can separate self from other to take the journey within, through the depths of inner hell, and emerge a soulful being.
Be the DARK KNIGHT of your own SOUL.

With my own blood and sweat, I have finally completed what I thought was a fence, a barrier to the outside world.
It is not until this very moment that I have come to realize, it was an enclosure, and I have forgotten to include a door.
If I speak or write and no one hears or reads it, is it still all in my head?
While it’s no secret, my adoration of the complexity of the English language, I’ve perhaps been a little too harsh on those that create their own variations.
In the midst of an identity crisis, I know I have searched and altered everything around me in attempts to find something I can relate to or call my own.
If acronyms, shortening, or altering language in anyway allows one to communicate with like minded individuals or create something that one can relate to or call their own, then it shouldn’t be perceived in a negative manner.
From early on in this existence I have felt connected to my habitat, but disconnected from my species. It has been fairly easy for me to mimic behavior(s) in order to be accepted socially and professionally.
By choice, I have slowly revealed my true self to those who have gained my trust and adoration. While the results may vary, the weight of the mask being lifted always nourishes my being.
As I become older, my willingness to participate in “make believe” has greatly diminished. And while the quantity of relationships appears to have mirrored this lack of associative action, I am left with a handful of quality relationships that I could not exist without.
