I can’t believe that this day has come. I’m ready. My bags are packed, and I’ve loaded the truck. My belongings are lagging a bit behind because my flight was cheaper than their delivery. Needless to say, I won’t need them for a while. Dear Tomorrow, I’m so excited. I couldn’t sleep last night. I watched television hoping that it would watch me. However, it didn’t. My heart beats with anticipation, and my mind wonders and wanders while thinking about the possibilities. I have thrown all caution to the wind because I recognized that my cautions were deceivers dressed in safety. I shaved, and I also cut my hair. When you come, I’m going to be the best version of me. I’m ready. I took the things that hurt me, cut them to their core, gazed upon their meaning, and peeled back their wrapping only to reveal the beauty that they were meant to be. I forgave. I was forgiven. My heart no longer beats to the staccato rhythm of yesterday. It flows to the warmth of you. School is over, and I have passed my tests. Dear Tomorrow, please tell my her to wear her favorite dress. Please let her know that while I’d really like to see the music of her thighs, I am completely satisfied with watching the poetry of her smile. Please let her know that I have freed myself and my memories from the prison that I once called normal. Let her know that this is a new me deserving of a new opportunity to share love with someone new. Please let her know that I want to be her friend. I want to share her life; I don’t want to control or dominate it. Please let her know. Dear Tomorrow, while I’m sorry that it took me quite some time to get here, I don’t apologize for still being excited. Thank you for waiting for me….Patrick
This week, please do something for someone other than yourself for no other reason than to make their lives better. Also, if you make it to where you’re going, please don’t forget to leave a map for the rest of us. Always Choose Love because Love Changes Everything…..
