Assumptions of the Young Mind


I could not determine why

I continued to let my hopes and dreams die

Turns out...

It was not about what I was missing

It was about what I had all along

It was not about being misunderstood

It was about misunderstanding

It was not about that "good" never happened

It was about action creating "good"

Turns out...

Analyze perceptions, not accept

Clarify morals within, do not act without

Evaluate relations, not avoid

Inner peace is a congitive state, not a goal

Turns out...

It was always my choice
