I wear my tattoos
ink drawn deep into my flesh
moments in time
symbolic of who I am
and where I’ve been
chapters of my very own
pencil written pages
-Risk Everything Fear Nothing
I was told to chase my dreams, because dreams don’t wait for anyone.
I left home miles away with nothing but my ambition accompanying me, smelling adventure in the air, feeling the wind blowing my hair back, that moment left me chills, till this day the goosebumps never went away.
I don’t pray anymore but I closed my eyes, praying that I am making the right decision.
I left the people I grew to love behind. They are angry while I am selfishly pursuing my goals of someday. They don’t say it with words, its too easy.
I have abandoned them, and they will never look at me the same.
I don’t wish anymore but at night I close my eyes, wishing them for forgiveness.
They call me a fool, I guess they’re right. I am a fool that’s constantly chasing, dreaming, and have to live with guilt haunting me at night.
