Wake Up

There’s something to be said for those who genuinely love you, want you to succeed, and bring you joy and laughter.

Truth is, most do it cause they don’t want another to see or feel the pain, and loneliness they feel.

Sad part, most are simply searching for a true friend, just one, that will allow them to be themselves without judgement and without the, I don’t have time for you until I need you, BS.

Truth is, we travel a path that will carry us as far away from the hurt as possible, only to have it catch up to us. And when it does, man does it strike with a vengeance.

September the 9th of 2009, had more in store for me than I could have ever prepared for. Although, I must admit, this was no different than any other time in my life; only this time would prove to be tough and a blessing.
