Dear Promised ones,
One of the biggest questions on my mind is: “Why are people so fascinated with tomorrow, yet neglect today?”
The last time I checked, tomorrow never promised me a damn thing. When I was younger, I always rushed everything because I was afraid of death. I remember questioning
“Why do people die without giving us warning?”
“Why do people die so young?”
“Did they live a happy fulfilling life before the grim Reaper took them away?”
And most importantly “Were they loved the way they needed to be loved during their time spent on earth?”
At the time, those were all great questions considering the fact that happiness was child’s play for us all as kids, not to mention as kids, we do things spur of the moment, meanwhile, tomorrow tried so hard to absorb todays attention.
As I grow older, tomorrow becomes a reward for all of the survivors that cheated death, while the moon decided to give the sun a break. A question that I do have is why do you think that its okay to treat people the way that you do? Those that are promised tomorrow are reckless with the hearts of the innocent, destructive with the mind of the sane and careless with those who are loyal to them. If you valued time as much as the next person and gave your all, predicting that there is no limitation to where love can take you. Then you would have no problem with loving me and everyone else that are cheated out of one of the greater things in life…True authentic love! The reason why I live for today is because I love to the best of my ability and to be completely honest. I know what it’s like to be hurt. To be taken advantage of and more importantly to rise from the ashes of my lowest point.
When I refer to those that are promised tomorrow, I mean the people that take advantage of the ones that love them wholeheartedly, unconditionally and genuinely. Being promised tomorrow means that, you’ve gone on a hurting spree hurting those that have loved you for no reason at all, with the intentions that tomorrow you will wake up and all with be forgiven. NEWS FLASH!!!! A broken heart doesn’t recover over night and feelings aren’t something that you can just blow up and make in to something beautiful like a balloon animal. Sorry if this might come off too harsh, but I’m just really done being a clown for you. In my opinion, tomorrow is always in the bitter distance. I know that I’m not promised tomorrow because I love you today just as much as I have loved you yesterday and as much as I will tomorrow. So for the limited time that I do have on this earth, I will give the best of me to the people that I encounter. I will love as much as my heart allows me to do so. People that are promised tomorrow tend to have the mentality that what you don’t know wont hurt you. In Layman’s terms they have a heart that’s two sizes too small. The mentality that I do have is that one man’s “trash” is another man’s treasure; when one might treat you as a piece of glass another will see you the way a jeweler see’s a diamond.
I guess what I’m trying to say, is to those who are promised tomorrow, would they have a different perspective on life, if tomorrow wasn’t promised to you? Would you have A different perspective on the way that you treat the ones that you claim you love? My theory is that the way one treats people has something to do with the way they perceive life. If you see life as a shitty wasteland for negativity, you are going to treat people like shit and think that its okay, while unintentionally knowing that its not good at all. Luckily, I know that I am promised today and today only, but this letter is to those that are promised tomorrow.
For the people that are promised tomorrow, if I tell you that I love you everyday, it’s because I know that one day you’re going to wake up and find that I have lost the battle of life. I will no longer be able to grace you with the smile that made you smile back. That heart that not only pumped for me, but for everyone else that I came into contact with, my soul that forgave you for everything, my memory that never forgot the hurt and the pain, my eyes that stared into your soul searching for that warm heart hospitality. It will all just disappear and tomorrow will just be wishful thinking.
Say what you have to say while my ears can still hear you. Give me what my body needs while I can still feel it. Make my dreams come true in this reality that deteriorates every inch of hope, motivation and happiness. Make today the day that waves good-bye to yesterday in the rearview mirror, while keeping in mind that tomorrow is light years away. To those who are promised tomorrow how does it feel to treat people like shit? I know that I’m not perfect, but I’m far from tomorrows regret.
To the people that are promised tomorrow, would you take everything for granted if tomorrow was never predicted? would you be so careless with a heart that’s so prone to boomeranging itself back to you, heartache after heartache? Would you actually love someone for the moment instead of waiting for the future to change who you really are? Because good hearts will always be good, but waiting is for those who are immortal and quite frankly we just don’t have that kind of time. So for the people that think that they are promised tomorrow along with the people that you’ve hurt, second and third chances along with forgiveness…You’re not promised. So think again and love someone, not for tomorrow but for today.
Sincerely those that aren’t promised,
