i have become a witness, and now i am no longer alone.
i can now only hope for more peace, more understanding for the days ahead. it will be an uphill journey but the effort won't seem as overwhelming because now i have company.
now i understand how it feels to be respected, more so trusted. i feel validated, grateful and humbled. being in the sidelines all this time, i never really felt that it was necessary for me to be part of the main event, but now i am. invited in and accepted, i can only feel joy because of it.
thank you for giving me the honor to bear your cause. it will be a pleasure to hold it amongst the treasures in my heart... not that it was never there from the beginning.
