Remember the dialogue in the movie Shawshank Redemption when Andy Dufresne says hope is the best of things? Yes, that be the word of a man who was gonna rot in prison probably for the rest of his life. Yet he got out and made a life for himself. What changed? He hoped. He hoped for a better life. His unshaken hope got him through his sufferings. For to get the life you want, you gonna have to have the kind of belief others cant even dream of possessing. Thats how you show you deserve it more than anyone else.
Below is a little something similar to what I tell myself if I ever find myself wishing I be dead. Although I got a good foothold from a Hollywood movie for this post, I did add my bit so that it be my words that I write.
May you always find the strength to get up everytime you fall down.
Do not go quiet into the night.
Do not fall silent without a fight.
Let the night be the darkness
And the light be the blinding fear.
May your voice drown in madness
And your fights end in nothingness.
May the stabs bleed you out
And the pain beat you down.
Let your heart crumble away
And hopes sink like paper boats.
And when you are done dying
Get up and fight.
For the darkness dont scare
Nor the pain
For the bleeding dont kill
Nor the sorrow
For you, my love,
Are all the bravery
Folktales talk of.
Have a good night people. Sleep tight for all is well when you believe it is.
