Through this journey we have so many close friends all over living the same sort of life. We cant always see them or spend the time we want but we always pick up right where we left off. The family we have chosen to grow, always wanting to be better.
Only the good die young, or so the story goes. But we're still living on stolen moments that I never thought that we'd have known. Perception is rarely the same as the reflection staring back at me. I stand bold in the face of a world that rewards the selfish and self-serving monsters that live to leach off of the helpless. Negativity encompasses all that I can see, morality is no authority. But I've still got blood in my veins, there's light in my eyes, and even with lungs filled with smoke I'm not ready to die. I find no comfort in this, but I've made family of friends. We've so much to accomplish, we're far from the end. We are the few and far away, we must exist as champions in these our darkest days. No distance can negate our strength, the few and far away. I am only content in my discontentment, progress is the only constant.
