“Do not let your fire go out,
spark by irreplaceable spark in the hopeless swamps of the not-quite,
and the not-at-all.
Do not let the hero in your soul perish in lonely frustration for the life you deserved
but never have been able to reach.
Check your road and the nature of your battle.
The world you desired can be won.
It exists, it is real, it is possible, it is yours.”
