“The Day You Read This” by I Wrote This For You
On this day, you read something that moved you and made you realise there were no more fears to fear. No tears to cry. No head to hang in shame. That every time you thought you’d offended someone, it was all just in your head and really, they love you with all their heart and nothing will ever change that. That everyone and everything lives on inside you. That that doesn’t make any of it any less real.
That soft touches will change you and stay with you longer than hard ones.
That being alone means you’re free. That old lovers miss you and new lovers want you and the one you’re with is the one you’re meant to be with. That the tingles running down your arms are angel feathers and they whisper in your ear, constantly, if you choose to hear them. That everything you want to happen, will happen, if you decide you want it enough. That every time you think a sad thought, you can think a happy one instead.
That you control that completely.
That the people who make you laugh are more beautiful than beautiful people. That you laugh more than you cry. That crying is good for you. That the people you hate wish you would stop and you do too.
That your friends are reflections of the best parts of you. That you are more than the sum total of the things you know and how you react to them. That dancing is sometimes more important than listening to the music.
That the most embarrassing, awkward moments of your life are only remembered by you and no one else. That no one judges you when you walk into a room and all they really want to know, is if you’re judging them. That what you make and what you do with your time is more important than you’ll ever fathom and should be treated as such. That the difference between a job and art is passion. That neither defines who you are. That talking to strangers is how you make friends.
That bad days end but a smile can go around the world. That life contradicts itself, constantly. That that’s why it’s worth living.
That the difference between pain and love is time. That love is only as real as you want it to be. That if you feel good, you look good but it doesn’t always work the other way around.
That the sun will rise each day and it’s up to you each day if you match it. That nothing matters up until this point. That what you decide now, in this moment, will change the future. Forever. That rain is beautiful.
And so are you.
God this is so beautiful. I was pressing random to get posts to use for fodder for my characters for my NaNoWriMo and this came up. Man what a gem. And I think my fictional people, me, and you, and everyone else can truly understand and appreciate this. I think with my book I want the main character who’s a male, which is a first for me though I did write two stories with a point of view of a guy but they were part of a larger whole, to realize some of these things at least.
I won’t say what cuz that might spoil things for you and I’m considering maybe showing an excerpt on here or on wordpress but we’ll see. But it’s strange cuz every single protagonist comes across some sort of epiphany, no matter what the genre or medium. It’s pretty vital actually. Though I could be wrong, I don’t really delve into experimental or art films, though those don’t have much of a storyline really from what I can tell. Hmm.
But all in all, this post reminds me how wonderful life is. It’s so gorgeous, right?
Here’s a link to the post, it’s interesting to read the comments hehe. And apparently they’re coming out with a book. I SO want to cop that!
