Hello my lovely reader,
This is a small piece of writing I was scribbling down for you to read just before 2017 ends. Hope you enjoy it 🙂 I wish you all a very happy new year. Have fun and be safe. See you in 2018!
“Did the year of 2017 fly and burn so fast that I could not even hold it in my palms for just one moment? Did I just blink my eyes for a millisecond ? Am I am confronted with December 31st already?
I need to tell you though before this moment becomes just another moment spent in the year of 2017 that,
You made such progress as a human being, you fed yourself, you breathed, you made friends, you cared for them as much as you can, you smiled with them, you danced your heart out, you promised that you will move forward not backwards. You found solace in new genres of music that you never thought you’d grow to love. But you really did! See how wonderful it is when you allow yourself to open up to art?
You learned that everyone has their own standards, that every one is in a constant struggle to succeed in life that they forget one day ‘you’ and ‘I’ will dissolve into nothingness.
Your smiles will be grand memories for me to cherish in the years to come. But above all you my dear, SURVIVED the storms that uprooted so many others. It was as if you held on to that one thing, that one fickle of hope that whispered in your ear at times you can conquer another day, one more hour, one more minute and another mere second.
I am glad ‘YOU’ are still here, I am glad you are still expressing your feelings no matter what form of art you choose to do so in. I am glad that you did not give up so you could listen to Taylor’s new album ‘Reputation’. It was really worth it, you will agree with me.
Even when you were in pain after the tsunami’s of life that hit you from time to time, your heart did not drown. Pain came in waves to add on to those after-shakes. But when some dissolved in to the salt water of those storms, you, yes you just trembled trying so hard to hold on. You did NOT crumble, you cried, you were hurt, you were stressed, you hated yourself but you did not crumble to the ground! I am so proud of you, I am so thankful you are still here.”
May you always have the courage to conquer through, may you find love in music, poetry, writing and art in general. May your future be blessed with so many happy times ahead. May you inspire millions of hearts that would stand tall together at hard times. May you become a star that would light up millions of hearts one day.
