We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit.

Cut so deep that it doesn't bleed.....
The worst kind of pain is 
The kind that can't be seen
Seen only in the dark by the demons that inflict it
It never fails in it's quest to leave the victim feeling afraid and abandoned 
Abandon hope all ye who enter here
Here is the place where your dreams end up
Up against nightmares with backup packing heat with steel bullets of fear 
Fear of the known and unknown the past and the future and what may or may not be
Be brave on the surface and it may carry over
Over to the place where pain is more than an abstract idea that can be conquerred by facing it
It battles with all the hurt and the fear and doubt of the world and all you have, is you 
You cannot be beat it
It will not be defeated but maybe
Maybe you could tame it
It could be forced into a cage and locked in a corner where you don't have to see 
See, but that won't last long because it needs the attention
Attention from those who try too hard not to look at it
So it fights ten times harder, and it won't be ignored by you
You tried to forget and it's vengeance will be to make sure you never will again
Again, I must enforce, that the worst kind of pain
Is the kind that can't be seen

“I'm selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can't handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don't deserve me at my best.”
― Marilyn Monroe
