[Clear Your Throat And Open Your Eyes. You Are On Stage. The Lights Are On. It's Only Natural If You're Sweating, Because This Isn't Make-believe. This Is Theater For Keeps. Yes, It Is A Massive Stage, And There Are Millions Of Others On Stage With You. Yes, You Can Try To Shake The Fright By Blending In. But It Won't Work. You Have The Creator God's Full Attention, As Much Attention As He Ever Gave Napoleon. Or Churchill. Or Even Moses. Or Billions Of Others Who Lived And Died Unknown. Or A Grain Of Sand. Or One Spike On One Snowflake. You Are Spoken. You Are Seen. It Is Your Turn To Participate In Creation. Like A Kindergartener Shoved Out From Behind The Curtain During His First Play, You Might Not Know Which Scene You Are In Or What Comes Next, But God Is Far Less Patronizing Than We Are. You Are His Art, And He Has No Trouble Stooping. You Can Even Ask Him For Your Lines.]

Daría mi vida por cualquiera de los dos, daría mi vida por su felicidad, pensé que tal vez cuando me dijiste que no me amabas, mis sentimientos se irían y desaparecerían pero no lo hicieron.
