There was once upon a time, when I put myself on a shelf for the sake of peace and quiet. Every time someone took a step forward, I took a step back. Every time they said something dangerous, I kept quiet, because I felt theirs was more the just cause. Every time they criticised, I let their hate increase due to my silence. But having spent so long on the shelf and realising the mess you have made of it all, I am no longer going to keep quiet, or step back. I am going to head off down the road and spend what time I have left on me.
