In the pit we are thrown as a child and its shame follows us wherever we go. We can rise to be the most powerful person in the land and everyone must obey when we say, “You come” or “You go”.
But it only takes one word or one sight to bring us to our knees or flat on our backs. Perhaps we have crossed paths with folks from our dark past. Then in the pit we have returned; its memory in our psyche and in our heart has burned.
Be free young man, young man or whomever you may be. Let not today hold you captive to another time and place. You are much more than the angry and twisted voices of yesterday.
