The lights on the edges of the darkness / are sometimes dim and few / have an ocean-sized force inside you that you can use to harness.

“I was amazed. I was amazed. Is it true that the policies of schools on even the most religiously touching subjects are so strict today! Has the Creator become taboo? Can’t the name even be mentioned at school? Who are the teachers afraid of – the parents of the students, the education authorities, the non-religious, the unbelievers, huh? ”
