Future Me

Damn girl! How in the world did we survive the hurricane that’s been our life?? “Everything happens for a reason” has aided in the frustration and insanity that’s clouded the path. Music has been the morphine drip numbing the violent vibrations pounding through our mind. Writing has been the escape route taken when running forward, every time we’ve murdered our past. Friends have bandaided small cuts and wounds. Family has been our solid shoulder to shed each black tear, created milestones of happiness and the warm embrace that’s comforted our heart.

This frozen moment is picturesque, strokes of brilliance beautifully framed for all the world to see.

Guarded we remain and that’s ok because the walls represent that trust is a privilege earned not just freely handed out or bought. Our heart is still under lock and key, but that’s ok too because its stitched strength is reserved for the one who deserves its goldenness. Its scars remind us that we will no longer blindly jump into just anyone’s arms. Despite these necessary glitches, we’re doing just fine (no I don’t mean freaked out, insecure, neurotic and emotional).

I must say that you’ve never looked so beautiful. You’ve become a force that wakes up every morning, ready to take on the day and every curve ball that may be thrown your way. As for the future, I can’t predict what storms may come, I can’t reveal if love with kiss your forehead, I can’t have loose lips if your story will ever be shared with the world. But, I can spill the secret that the pasts ashes will forever reside six feet under, never to darken your starry night.

The only advice that I shall pay you off with is never ever hinder who you are, under any circumstances should you fold. Life only gives you a single game. So, Shuffle the deck…. Grasp the hand you’ve been dealt…. Shut your eyes…. Take a breath…. And play those Aces….

I’m stuck in this moment, freeze the hands of time ’cause I feel inner peace when I’m outta my mind… -Ludacris
