If this letter to you is a meaningless mess of muck that is nothing more to you than the dirty piece of gum stuck to the underside of your shoe,
Throw it away
Or burn it.
Burn it and stick the flames in a torch that you can use to light the way in this world.
And when you've found your way through this swamp of fear and sadness and monsters that try to drag you down,
I want you to set it on fire.
I want you to share this fire of hope and understanding and courage with others.
And if they don't like this and want to throw it away,
Tell them they can throw it away if they want
Or tell them to hold onto it and
just wait a little longer and read it again.
Just take this in from someone who's continuously learning.
When your a baby, you learn to walk and you do it.
When your a toddler, you learn to talk and you do it.
When your a kid, you learn to do school work and make friends
and you do.
When your a teenager, you learn to date and take on responsibilities
and you do.
And well....
That's as far as I've gotten.
You are always learning new things and one day
Chasing your dream is going to be one of those things,
and you will learn how to get there.
