Lucas: Sometimes I wonder if anything's absolute anymore. Is there still right and wrong? Good and bad? Truth and lies? Or is everything negotiable,left to interpretation, grey. Sometimes we're forced to bend the truth, transform it, because we're faced with things that are not of our own making. And sometimes things simply catch up to us.
But the truth is still absolute. Believe that. Even when that truth is hard and cold, and more painful than you've ever imagined. And even when truth is more cruel than any lie.

It shouldn't matter

It shouldn't matter. That seed that takes root in your heart. Those tiny little niggling thoughts that make you feel less than whole, like a part of you is missing. You can't explain why they started, why they spread their tentacles through your mind and preyed upon your insecurities until they drained every part of you.

Self doubt is a strange thing. It feeds on your thoughts until you feel as though you can't survive without it. Like every well informed patient, you know the prognosis. You've tried to battle it with incurable optimism, but somehow it manages to bounce back with ever persistent resoluteness.

It shouldn't matter. These thoughts shouldn't matter.But somewhere, deep in the recesses of your heart, you know that while they shouldn't, they just do..

...

Dashes of dazzling sunrise yellow
Ripples of languid cherry blossom pink
Splashes of fiery auspicious vermillion
Streaks of mysterious midnight blue
Swabs of ethereal mystical purple
Dabs of passionate flaming scarlet
Pools of pure pristine azure
Rivulets of molten mercurial silver
Swirls of vibrant emerald green
Waves of calm cerulean blue
Flecks of warm honeyed gold
