It's come to my attention that somewhere along the way, my self was hijacked.
But now I know.
I'm taking it back with force and I've got one thing going for me;
      though, I don't know yet who I am, I know whose I am.
I know
        who sees me, where the grace is, where the mercy is.
             And so....
I'm bringing to your attention that somehow from here on out, my self is breaking free.
And now you know.

She gave up beauty in her tender youth,
Gave all her hope and joy and pleasant ways;
She covered up her eyes lest they should gaze
On vanity, and chose the bitter truth.- Christina Rossetti

  5. great sentiments...maybe your self wasn't hijacked but only covered up with the everyday stuff. Good luck breaking free.

  6. Very inspirational. Reminds me of the idea of subliminal messages to brainwash kids. Stay strong, think critically, never be forced to think a uniform way. We are all individuals capable of thinking for ourselves; while keeping our own identities intact. Thank you for sharing!
