No matter what I do, no matter who I meet, I jump into everything with all my heart and with both feet... I have always believed that sometimes you need to either go all in, or go home - because life needs to be lived not waited for like a phone call... no matter what has happened, no matter what I have done, I have lived a life of laughter and fun, with some people who might never again look my way and may even choose to cross a busy street just so they don't run into me... I have walked, I have ran, I have flown, and I have fallen - but no matter what life has thrown at me, and no matter what people have put me through, if my time on Earth were to end tonight then I could honestly say that I have had a ball... no matter the smiles, no matter the tears, no matter the denials, no matter the fears - I hope people who have danced with me will remember forever where and when we had our moments to shine in our own spotlight, and remember that there were times when everything felt like a dream because our shared moments were better than we could have imagined... everybody who gives something of themselves knows that they will never recieve in return anything close to the energy and the love that they once gave to someone else - but sometimes in life you have to gamble, you have to show that you do not flinch, and you have to show the hand of cards that you have been dealt and go all in.
My Poem “The Comeback Kid”
He had been hurt... He had been cursed... He had learned the hard way that some things are not meant to last - but people who truly knew Him always believed and expected that He would one day make a comeback... He had felt turned inside-out... He had felt used and worn-out... He had been attacked on every side, He had been thought to have been defeated, He had been left wounded and scarred from His experiences - but the people who had thought Him easily destroyed always got a shock when He rose again like the sun and found a way to close the distances... some people would rather discount fate and mistakenly believe that life is all a series of coincidences, but His interactions had taught Him otherwise - which is why He always trusted His senses... He had been deceived... He had been non-believed... He had been thrown to the side like a piece of litter from a car window - but what some people do not know or realise is that He never forgets and He always remembers every thing and every face that He has been shown... He has spoken; He has listened... He has been broken; He has been awakened to the good and the bad of what others and He himself did... He has felt burned - physically, as well as in effigy; but, do you know what? He does not regret the fact that He has lived... He is many things - but one thing that He likes about himself, and what some people have said that they admire about Him, is that no matter what happens He will always be The Comeback Kid.
