Learn To Overcome

"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one's definition of your life; define yourself."....Inspirational Quotes by Harvey Fierstein
"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."
---Mahatma Gandhi
These two quotes prompted me to write "This Swing This Home" because there are too many of us who have allowed the words and actions of people to define our existence.We have accepted names and slept in holes that were never dug for us because we still have not found the beauty and the unwavering determination within ourselves to resist what the world says is "normal".Learn to overcome.Learn to say enough.Learn to crawl to your destination when your legs have no more strength to carry you.Learn to bend and not break!!!
