The Screaming Inside of Us

On Facing Ourselves


Eventually, no amount of music will be able to drown out the spirit screaming inside of us.

Eventually, no amount of solitude will numb us from our world.

No amount of armor will shield us from our truth.

Eventually, no amount of approval will make us feel worthy—even for a second.

No amount of self righteous indignation will silence our fear of inferiority.

Eventually, there will be nothing left to destroy.

Eventually, we will have to face ourselves.
