if you feel lost and tired this is your song.

This photo was taken in the year i was born, 1994 by Kevin Carter.
It shows a starving child crawling towards a United Nations food camp located a kilometer away.
The vulture is waiting for the child to die so that it can eat it, This picture shocked the whole world.
No one knows what happened to the child, including Kevin who left the child as soon as he took the photograph.

Three months later Kevin Carter committed suicide because of this picture.

Today had the potential to be a bad day.
Today was a bad day to someone special to me.
But today, for me, was a good day.
Because today i realized that i am not alone in this journey.
That there is someone there that actually understands what i am going through.
Someone special, who goes through a lot of what i do myself.
You UNDERSTAND me, and i have been looking for that.
For so, so, so long.
So Renee Frances Verhoeven i thank you for today’s discovery of your wonderful, wonderful understanding.
You only deserve the best of what life gives you.
