A Little Brain Damage

You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching,
Love like you’ll never be hurt,
Sing like there’s nobody listening,
And live like it’s heaven on earth.

—William Purkey

There’s darkness in all of us. Some choose to wear it on their sleeve showing everyone how they really are. Others bottle it up and use it as an energy source bringing light to others while they themselves stay in the shadows. Happiness may win but every so often darkness prevails and the light that helped so many fades away. But it doesn’t mean we can’t still be warmed by it even after its gone.
