Lay Upon the Cross

 

What I lay upon the cross:

 – the false preconceptions made by others which are solely based on my disability rather from my character and capabilities

 – my lack of patience and frustration of not fulfilling my potential to the best of my ability

 – my anger towards myself for failing in so many ways. read more…
