The Finest Souls
The finest souls are the souls who swallowed pain and avoided making other people taste it. I was once an awful soul at periods within my life and I have learned that other people, including myself, have given me a beautifully wrapped present holding a box of darkness. It took me many ears to realize that this too was a gift. A gift of sin wrapped in shame and covered in sorrow to reflect the examples of what not to do again.
