    Am I Too Nice?

    I hate this part of me. I always try to find it but when they let me down. I'm hurt. I'm beaten up. So sometimes. I don't know should i expect or should i think the worst and just be surprised when their good comes out?

    We Are All

    Every one of us is a bit of the Divine.  I try to remember that, and seek out the Divine in those around me. Sometimes it's hard, but I keep looking.
