Never Be Silenced

Newer Older

6/52 - Silence

I used to sit on the porch… I used to swing… I used to do all sorts of things that made life hum and ring. But now I look around me and a harsher world surrounds… and I wonder night and day if something better could be found. In that moment I stop and pray and bitter creeps down my spine. As I grow each day and walk away, my childhood is on the line.

Do not let your childhood be silenced. I feel as though all the pain in the world could be rid of, if everyone kept to the basics of children- that carefree, loving acceptance! May this just be a shocking image to remind us of what we should get back to! I love being a kid, and I never want that to die :)

Hey, and on a positive note thanks SO much to Jordan and Amelia and Roanne for the testimonials! Jordan is a great friend and Amelia and Roanne are wonderful too, so check their streams and know I am so thankful for you guys!

p.s. THANKS SO MUCH for my first front page :D

    Such a powerful image, Rob!
    It's your eyes that are crying out and doing the talking... absolutely no need for words with this expression.
    You rock, mister!

    good message. i'm pretty confident that if my behavior is no less child-minded at 25 than it was at 16 or 9, my inner child is in a safe position of sticking around forever :)
