I Am A Wordsmith. And I Spew The Truth.

"MY NAME IS CAT ELLINGTON. AND I AM A WOMAN WHO:

SEEKS THE TRUTH.
FINDS THE TRUTH.
GETS TO KNOW THE TRUTH.
FALLS IN LOVE WITH THE TRUTH.
MOVES IN WITH THE TRUTH.
MAKES LOVE WITH THE TRUTH.
COMMITS MYSELF TO THE TRUTH.
REPRODUCES WITH THE TRUTH.
BUILDS A UNIT WITH THE TRUTH.
GETS FRUSTRATED WITH THE TRUTH.
STRIVES WITH THE TRUTH.
CRIES WITH THE TRUTH.
MAKES UP WITH THE TRUTH.
RESUMES LIFE WITH THE TRUTH.
PASSES TIME WITH THE TRUTH.
GROWS OLDER WITH THE TRUTH.
WILL DIE WITH THE TRUTH.

FOR THE TRUTH IS WHAT I REPRESENT; IT IS WHAT I LOVE.
AND IT IS WHAT I CHOOSE TO INFUSE INTO MY CREATIVE CONTRIBUTION - ESPECIALLY WHERE MY WORKS OF SONG AND POETRY ARE CONCERNED.
HOWEVER, THERE ARE SOME WHO UTTERLY DESPISE THE TRUTH. AND THESE ARE THE SAME WHO IN TURN WILL DESPISE ME FOR BRINGING THE TRUTH IN THROUGH THE WRITTEN WORD.
AND THAT'S JUST FINE WITH ME . . . MY LOVE FOR PEOPLE DOES NOT CEASE.
BUT DESPITE THEIR HOSTILITY, I, CAT ELLINGTON, WILL CONTINUE TO SPEAK, THROUGH THE WRITTEN WORD, WHAT IS TRUTH . . . AND WHAT IS RIGHTEOUS . . . AND WHAT IS FAITHFUL . . . AND WHAT IS ENCOURAGING . . . AND WHAT IS REBUKE . . . AND WHAT IS EXHORTATION . . . AND WHAT IS EXHALTATION . . . AND WHAT IS STRENGTH . . . AND WHAT IS REALITY . . . ALL IN A SPIRIT OF TRUE LOVE.

FOR IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS. AND NEITHER IS THE SORROW OF THE HEART."
