I am becoming accustomed to the new way of thinking. Where ideas are malled over with fears. Where creativity is surpassed by ego. It is the new way. I constantly find myself asking why it is becoming of me. It has never been in my nature to stand down, or hide who I am. But this time I feel in over my head. The new era has breached my pure energy. For this, I am fearful. Fighting will only make me weak. But giving in, I know, will dim my light and shrink my soul.
