I met you in the upper room Of a house where I slept with the angels From hell and from heaven Some for haunting, some for guarding Each to his own purpose over my trembling skin And I kept my secrets far from your condition And in the explosions they both were just powders In..

It seems important that I use this platform I’ve been given to be honest. And the truth is that I almost didn’t do this speech. The truth is that I have spent the last few weeks feeling like I have been asking too many questions and dealing with too many triggers in the past two..
