This is Very False:

The conquerors are the passionate ones.
They go in hard and give all for the win.
No one ever accused Napoleon of not giving a damn.

But we can't all be victorious, can we?
And I, in all self-consciousness and fear of defeat,
I put on apathy and with head held high,
I and my heart will survive.

"Interestingly, 'growing up' is largely a matter of learning to hide our spirit behind our face, eyes, and language so that we can evade and manage others to achieve what we want and avoid what we fear."

Here is truth:

True love always wants to be known.

Fear and love cannot coexist.


  1. This is beautiful, Elena! Where did the quotes come from?

  2. That we hide to evade and manage is so true...sadly true. It's a gracious gift when we can really be ourselves and be "known."
