Foreword

All the stories, poems, rants, reflections, and everything that will be posted here is inspired by my belief that each person is born free. Freedom to love, to live, to believe,to be happy and the most important of all, the freedom to choose.

We live life not knowing what the future brings, we take risks, we try our best. Sometimes we make mistakes, but then again we learn from them. There are times we fail, but thru failure we strive to improve. Sometimes we win, sometimes we lose, on both accounts we gain experience.

For every decision we make, for every right and wrong, for every struggle, we may face defeat, we may grasp victory, whatever thru our daily ordeals, we will come out better than we were before.

We are not bound by destiny, we make it.

I will be ending this post with a poem titled “Invictus” by William Ernest Henley:

Out of the night that covers me,
      Black as the pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
      For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
      I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
      My head is bloody, but unbowed.
Beyond this place of wrath and tears
      Looms but the Horror of the shade,
And yet the menace of the years
      Finds and shall find me unafraid.
It matters not how strait the gate,
      How charged with punishments the scroll,
“I am the master of my fate, 
      I am the captain of my soul.”
