There’s something that everyone needs to hear, even though they may not know me… I want them to know:
Maybe You Don’t Know:
Maybe you don’t know that you’re wonderful, that inside you is a spark of the divine. It’s possible no one has told you, or that the ones who have make it hard to believe.
Maybe you don’t know that you’re special,
That your past doesn’t define you, that the future can be just fine. I suspect there’s a darkness that chases you, and on the lonely nights when you think that no one in the world is there for you, that you feel alone. I promise you are not alone. I promise that you are special, you are more than this single moment, but right now it feels like this moment reflects all eternity. It does not.
Perhaps no one has told you, that it’s just because of you, that smiles come from rainbows, and dreams can still come true. The world is impacted by you, and in ways that you don’t know, or can’t feel right now, you are special. You do make a difference… and you’re worth your best effort.
Don’t give up, sometimes we need to take a nap in order to stay up all night. Which is a metaphor for life. Remember to breathe, the dawn will come, and when the fog is gone the path is clear.
This is not a poem.. it definitely doesn’t rhyme. But it’s a plea for you to believe that you are more than this moment… and that your value is beyond rubies, diamonds, and piles of gold.
We had the opportunity to do a “Father’s and Son’s” camp out. One thing that is less bad about Tucson is that there’s a great mountain (decent one) that looms over the north east part of the city. From here, I can’t help but think of a quote from Star Wars.
