Free Dome


The greatest fear we have is of each other. How others will judge us, dependent on what we have or do not have. How wonderful it is when we see someone who is without shame in the face of the world. See, freedom isn’t just some political achievement. Freedom is that individual who dances without care, that one who speaks of the spirits, that one who is always only themself, beautiful, no matter what people may think.
The eyes of other people constitutes a powerful force. It drags down stars. It drives skilled musicians to mundanity. All of these closed, locked down perceptions. What we allow, what we perceive. This is what determines the world.

and god help you if you are a pheonix
and you dare to rise up from the ash
a thousand eyes will smolder with jealousy
while you are just flying back
