Help-by Chauday Wilson
I awake, weak; and shivering cold.
I find myself in the street, instead of a home.
I think to myself...how did I get here? Why do I feel so weak?
I try to scream...HELP...but find no words to speak.
I think back and I hear my teacher say, "Be drug free".
I remember ignoring her only thinking about me.
I'd say...Me? Drugs? I wouldn't dare.
I just rolled my eyes and flipped my hair.
But now look at me...worse than a little lost kitten or homeless child.
I haven't had a decent day in a long while.
So look at me...look hard and true.
And answer this...do your really want this to be you?

Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?
Actually, who are you not to be?
You are a child of God.
Your playing small does not serve the world.
There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other
people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
