You close your eyes.   

They're back.

Those thoughts you tried so hard to forget, they're back and you can't hide from them any longer.

Weep, weep every tear.

You won't escape their wrath, you never have.

Stand tall.

Hold your head up high.

You are better than they say, you're better than their harsh, whispered words.

Wipe your tear streaked face and stand your ground.

The battle is over.

You have won.

Rest in peace, Leonard Nimoy. The Trekkie world will miss you dearly and the rest of the world will mourn your passing.
