I refuse to spend the rest of my life afraid of being consumed by the light hiding deep inside of me. Flames don’t destroy matter; flames change matter. A flame does not destroy a piece of paper; it simply changes that paper into ash — which makes it equally as useful as it was as paper. So if my entire life is consumed by the fire inside of me, so be it. In the end, I will be changed into something wonderful.
So here’s to being a firework. Go light up the sky. And MAKE THINGS HAPPEN.
“You just gotta ignite the light / and let it shine / Just own the night / like the Fourth of July” — Katy Perry “Firework”
P.s. Jennifer, this one’s for you!
