The way I behold life is probably quite different than most. I walk into the world and behold every creature that walks around and I truly study them: each and every one with their different quirks and ticks (I know, I sound like a creeper). Some have dark features; some have fair skin; some have deep voices; and some talk with a monotone voice enough to drive one crazy.

I have noticed that not everyone is as they appear though when it comes to the outward/inward aspects. I come to see that the ones with the happiest appearances are broken inside. The happiness that they wear is almost as a clothing that masks what is underneath. You know the part that no one wants or needs to see. On the other hand, you have the ones who appear as paupers on the store corners; however, after finding out, one learns they are very wealthy; living in a high-end suburb of the city. We are humans, creatures of many talents and tricks, and I can’t help but believe that that is where we have to start exercising our trust- believing and having faith in something until it’s proved otherwise.

We are creatures that are strong enough to live a lie, to be one thing on the outside and a totally different person underneath. We are creatures weak enough to admit when we have this problem. We are creatures who have the power enough to change our ways and be someone we are proud of both on the outside and the inside. We are creatures who have the willpower to believe the best about others; and when we believe in another, this ultimately has potential to reshape their underground secrets and withered will.

I have found that when I stop to behold this life and the creatures called humans, I stand in awe. I stand amazed at the potential each one holds. I am taken back by what each one is capable of accomplishing. I have made it my goal to be that creature who believes in another and lights their inner light; to show them their heavenly potential and trust that they can be true both inside and out. My challenge to all: see the flawed, see the flawless, see their folly and be a difference to them. Fomacs1_web
