My Foundation
Who are you to put your weight
on me? You will see that I have
taken on so much from those before me.
And what exactly is that?
It is the darkness, you do not see
It is the light that I show unto you
And this is what has come out of
it. It is that I am proud to be
acknowledged by those before me and
to stand at the front lines to start
my journey
