This is a promise.
One day, the stars will align, and the dots will connect, and you’ll finally see the big picture, all coming together.
Maybe No, you aren’t dreaming fruitlessly. You gotta go on so you’ll have lived enough to say, “I made it”, as you stand in the throbbing pulse of your life, coming together at full force. You gotta go on so you can live to see the day where you’ve burnt your brightest, like a shooting star. You gotta go on so you understand just how beautiful, brilliant, and absolutely stunning reality could be, that you’d finally understand why people claim that “dreams do come true”, as sickeningly saccharine and overly optimistic as it sounds. You gotta go on until each of your senses are on fire, assaulted by the conviction you get from crystal sharp clarity, guidance, and direction. You finally see it! You see the light at the end of the tunnel! And you’re running, running, running towards it. Liberation. Sweet, sweet liberation of the soul.
You gotta go on so one day in the very near future or maybe ten years from now, I can ask you, “Are you happy?”
And you’d smile at me, rosy-cheeked and glowing with confidence, as you say, “Absolutely happy”, because the word “happy” fits like a glove around your heart, and slides easily off your tongue.
Until that magical promise of tomorrow, you continue to plod on.
It’s the only thing you know how to do, after all.
It’s the one thing worth doing, because you can do it, and you know better than to give up now.
You CAN DO THIS.
