WE HARBOR OUR TRUTHS TO BE SELF EV-I-DENT. SELF A-WARE. SELF IN-DUCED. SELF-ISH. A MYRIAD OF SELVES WE ARE. DISCOVERING. RE-DISCOVERING. RE-LEAS-ING. UNLEASH THE CHILD WHO CONTROLS OUR EGOCENTRIC WAYS. UNTAME. UNLEARN. WE HARBOR OUR TRUTHS TO BE SELF...SELF...SELFISH? THINKERS WE ARE. WE ARE NOT. CONNECTORS WE ARE. WE ARE NOT. LOVERS WE ARE. WE ARE NOT. FREE SPIRITS WE ARE. WE ARE NOT. WE HARBOR OUR TRUTHS TO BE SELF-IGNORANT. PURPOSELESS. THOUGHTLESS. OH, WE WILL HIDE BEHIND OURSELVES. OUR WALLS. OUR EXCUSES. OUR GHOSTS. WE WILL SHELTER OURSELVES FROM PAIN. FROM TRUTH. FROM R-E-A-L-I-T-Y. IT'S SO MUCH EASIER TO WRITE OFF SELF-AWARENESS. MORE COMFORTABLE TO LIVE WITHIN OUR OWN SKIN. WITHIN OUR OWN WORDS. WITHIN OUR ACTIONS. RE-ACTIONS. THAN TO SEARCH AND LIVE OUR TRUTHS. THANT TO SEARCH AND LIVE OUR LOVE. THAN TO SEARCH AND LIVE ALL. THAT. WE. ARE. WE ARE FAR LESS COMPLEX AND MORE COMPOUND. WE ARE FAR MORE. THAN WE ARE NOT.
