Welcoming to the world as I see it...
|Welcome to Life

Dedicated to Courtney Sprague
Going leaving holding losing bringing stolen life death. These are the things that happen in our world. These are things that go on: hope dreams disappointment reality. Seeing feeling falling to the desires of our own addictions. Watching waiting, hearing the call beckoning for some answer. Screaming for help, relief flowing through. These are the thing that happen in our world. Silent screams of poverty, and loud exclaims of boasting. Money greed power frustration. Friction of monetary goals. Doubtful hints of tomorrow. Love hatred, frightened happy. Addiction recoveries, lost and found. People are the same as you or me, people are different as you and I don't forget what we came for. Don't forget our struggles, don't believe the false lies. Remember the ones whom fought for this land, and don't you dare take away our pride. We prosper our lives to this moment so don't you dare let a stupid mistake bring you down. We are fighters. We our believers. I am a dreamer, but not the only one. United we stand so therefore united we must fall. One of us go down the wrong road we all go down the wrong road as well. Don't back down to a challenge, don't walk away when it's your time. Speak out when you can, and yet be quiet as you must. Shall one of us fall we must rise to respect of the one that had fallen. Push the envelope, but at that same rate know your boundaries. Believe in yourself as I believed in you. Take the road less traveled by and stand your ground if needed. Your are powerful, beautiful and strong in your own ways. Rise up to the occasion because at that same rate your going to fall once and awhile. Succeed but also fail because let's face it you learn more when you do fail. Learn from your mistakes and move on. Your human and humans make mistakes. Try your best and never back down, and as you finish reading this I now say to you today:
Welcome to the world, welcome to planet Earth, and most of all, Welcome to life!
