There were the wise ones.
Everyone has a purpose. Everything has a place otherwise there would be no room for you or me; but we are afraid. We are afraid to go out there and find it. Finding where we truly belong. It takes a lifetime. It is what we call life. For in life, there’s a constant search. Just because its constant, doesn’t mean its empty, doesn’t mean its meaningless. Sometimes we get lost, but it’s up to us to find ourselves. The joy of birth and rebirth. All the same, meaning or no meaning, don’t you want to find out? Doesn’t it bother you? You have this time and this time only, you’ll never be 10 again, its long gone and you won’t be 25 again or 60. Birth and rebirth.
The way you breath everyday, live. Find out parts of you that you never knew. Put a middle finger up to those who selfishly want to keep you tethered to the ground. They are too afraid. People who are never bothered by introspection, people who live their lives solely for how they are perceived rather than for who they are. People who want to control you. People who don’t like change. Be weary of such people because they’ll find a way to keep you chained to them. They know (deep down) they are throwing it all away and they want the comfort of someone by their side to make them feel whole and better about themselves. They are happy when you’re miserable.
I’m sorry. I wish I could help you but I can’t. Some choices in life you just have to make them on your own because only you know what you truly want. You know what would truly make you happy. What you’re passionate about, what sacrifices you feel you need to make in your quest. For me, I’m just hoping you get to do it because the world only becomes better when you know your place in it. Remember to carry love with you at all times. This sounds strange I know, but love will guide you and you’ll give love. Everything bows in the face of love. As scared as you may be, as alone as you may feel, be brave and go out there. It’s your life, it’s your time. It always has been from the moment you were born. Spread your wings, flex your power and you’ll become a beacon for another soul. The world isn’t (only) changed by grand gestures but a soul at a time that make up a whole. Every mountain began as a rock, every fire is birthed from a spark so don’t be afraid to stand your ground, don’t be afraid to fan your flame.
They say be careful what you wish for because you just might get it all. I say, since you are going to get it all, search your heart to find what’s true because you are going to shine. Let that bright light be worthy of being among the stars. So I hope you find your way. I hope you’ll hold on long enough and I hope the world will be a better place because we chose to be better. Now go out there and live.
It’s the only way to do this thing called life.
It’s not without meaning.
