“wake up wake up”
Are you still there?
“I’ve been awaiting your call”
I need you more than ever now father.
“No ones got it all”
Yes but I don’t seem to have anything anymore.
“What have you lost child?”
My courage. My strength. My optimism.
It seems that I have taken a wrong turn and don’t know how to get back. I don’t like it here, it’s dark.
“I know something disturbs your sleep at night.”
How can I help him? How can I help all of us stay strong and come out of this rough patch, out of the dark. I feel like I am paralyzed father, like I can watch him drowning but I cannot save him.
” He shall not drown, I will not let him.”
Then where does that leave me?
Should my sanity be sacrificed to help him? help them?
I feel myself, my happiness drifting, my strength and grip is weakening.
” and as you float what do you hold?”
Fear, of losing something close, someone.
“have faith in me child and I shall guide you to shore, I shall toss another lifesaver to you, we will swim and you can save them all. My warrior, my pupil, this battle is not yet over, it will be won and when the flame is out I will sweep up the ashes and take your sadness with me. I will dispose of those in the ocean so the world can once again begin its cycle. And these events that have caused you so much pain will be repressed only to become a blur with old age. My child, please, be patient and have faith in me, for I will be your map to life, your compass out of the forest, your boat out of the ocean. And although you can never see me you can always feel me, I never leave. For as long as I am here, I will be your sky, you shall be my sun, I revolve around you.
Wake up wake.
I’ve been watching you.”
