My Planet

I would rather be ashes than dust!

I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry rot.

I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet.

The proper function of man is to live, not to exist.

I shall not waste my days in trying to prolong them.

I shall use my time.

by Jack London

For a long time I have lived on what my mother calls my own planet. It is the place I reside, when I hide who I am. It is the place that I go to live secretly alone. Recently I had a major encounter with my authentic self. I no longer want to live on the planet. I want to share this planet with the world. I want to share my heart with others and not hide who I am. I will live free- to be the me God made me to be. I love it.
