I can think the world is mine for the taking, but really the world took me and I am only here to give back. The more I take, the more I will expect. Stay humble.
I was going through old posts and wanted to delete them, but I’m glad that I didn’t. I wish I had never stopped blogging because it’s humbling to see how far I’ve gone since I’ve felt like x y and z. If there’s two things I could single out that helped shape me to who I am today it’s heartbreak and marijuana. HA. Weed got me dreaming and heartbreak set me straight. Through all my posts there was still something else in there that will forever send me back to the awkward me of the 8th grade memorizing Robert Frost.
The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and water wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
It’s 7 years later and my heart knows comfortable is what the mind wants. If I just trust my heart, though it may hurt, I’ll find my way. Heck, I made it through middle school, high school, and almost done with college. I’m still young. Come at me life!
