message in a bottle.
to whomever this message reaches...
i am now in my own world. a world north of reality. sometimes even south. i realize i have been here my entire life. it has just taken me a while to get the obstacles out of the way so that i could clearly tell where i stand, where i am, who i am. and what have i discovered here?
i am an island of myself surrounded by oceans of love. surrounded by people that will carry me when i can't seem to carry the weight of this world anymore. surrounded by the passion and the drive to wake up every morning and live a life with no regrets. there is no looking back on this island. as much as i want to, the currents will simply push me forward.
but in this world, there are still days that are dry. days that i can't stand the heat, nights that i can't stand the cold. where do i go then? the oceans are quiet and i am alone. i pray and the wind comes, awakening the waters. they shower me with hope and i am no longer lonely. sometimes i forget i am never alone.
although i have my share of hardships, this message will contain no S.O.S. i am no vessel in need of saving. i have what i need.
signed, yours truly.
