To Thine Own Self Be True

Alone, in the dark, far from home.

Definition. The last bastion against meaninglessness. When all seems upended, perverted, and mistaken, we define our world with defensive reflex, write a song of lament for what is, was, could have been.

And so, in throes of desperation,
When all else resists my definition,
I turn my weary words inward
And cry out to define myself

Alone, in the dark, far from home.

"Above all beware of excessive day dreaming, of seeing yourself in the centre of a drama, of self pity, and, as far as possible, of fears." The Collected Letters of C.S. Lewis V1: Family Letters 1905-1931
