"It's Just The Beginning"
Note to My Future Self:

I hope you are still well.
And I sure as hell hope you didn't forget.
To never allow yourself to quit.

I hope you kept striving
And you never ceased surviving.
That you loved and lost
But continued to love with all your heart.

We both know how easily
You'd give in to relentless squeezing
Of Life from our very lungs.
But nonetheless I hope you fought beyond and above
Never agreeing to abandoning life.
I hope it gets better.

Even when times get at their hardest
Continue to endeavor
Because I swore I would forever.

So before I go
I'll let you know,
I will love you for who you are
And not hate what my past self did.

I will love you. So be you and nothing else.
Loving you, taking care of you.

Keep in touch and remind me of how good we are
Do wake up and thank God you took another breath.

Go to sleep and thank God for life.
Death Only to rest and rise again.
Relieved. You've made it.
Ecstatic. You lived to the fullest.
Grateful. You made for better every day.
You lived.
Thank God, you lived
