Shipping And Handling

“Oh love, you are not a stain on anyone.
You are so much more.”

Oh love, you are not a stain on anyone. You are not a mistake. You are not a burden. Or anything else people may have said to you as they put you in a box of labels where none ever seemed to fit. They are a reflection of their own ignorance. So remember: you are so much more. You are so much more.

You are so much more
than their narrow minds
and judgements.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words. Society, as a general rule, tends to label people without ever really knowing them as a person. But often those don’t even apply. I would compare it to looking at an eighth of Stormy Night and trying to encompass the entire piece into one word. You just can’t do it that way.
