Dear young and lost,
Id love to tell you what to avoid in life,what you should definitely not do, or who you shouldn't be hanging around but, then you wouldn't become the person that you are today. Instead I'll give you a small glimpse of what your life will become.
You will chose a path that most would be too scared to walk on and because of this you'll walk alone. You'll run into some interesting folks along this route but try not to hang around them too long. You'll try to leave the path in which you've chosen, so you'll begin to run. Before you know it you'll stumble and fall harder than you've ever fallen. All you would have to do is get up, but you won't. You'll stay laying there full of pain for 9 gut wrenching years. Blaming everyone else for your fall, but never yourself. Even though, there were signs everywhere saying watch your step, which you chose to ignore. While lying there on the ground people will walk all over you. Not caring if they have hurt you because chances are they have been hurt too. Then something crazy will happen..you will just stand up. You then will realize you made it so hard for yourself for years and years and for no reason at all. This thought alone will make your feet slip up and you will almost fall again, but this time you'll be strong enough to catch yourself. You will then walk slowly and graciously to a new path. This path will feel weird at first because it will be much wider, blooming flowers all around you, and beautiful butterfly's will be all around you. You will experience life all over again and take everything in like you were reborn. It will be beautiful. I can promise you that much.
The older new you.
I'll be with you along every step of the way.
