I know we struggle with our dreams.
The disconnect is between now and future.
Sometimes a vast chasm.
Yet why rush?
This, right now is your story.
Don‘t be so quick to will it away.
What interest, a biography without pain?
What relatability, success without struggle?
You are in the heart of your dream.
Revivified by the longing.
Renewed by the aspiration.
If you are wayward, hoist high the sail.
How else do we harness a storm?
Scream into it.
Reckon with it.
Rejoice in it.
This, you get to live.
You, the diabolical miracle.
Only at the edge of the world did you recognise how beautiful you are.
And did it salute you in return.
Yes, dear friends.
Today is not your ending.
It is your beginning.
