Reflections of Hope

I came across a band’s album today.  I figured I should listen to it since I was getting tired of the songs I have on my iPod (don’t get me wrong, I love the songs I have there, I just wanted to add a little more variety to it), so I went ahead and downloaded the songs from iTunes and copied them over to my iPod.
There’s one particular track that I decided to share with you all.  It’s not actually a song, more like a monologue (and a very good one at that).  Hopefully this particular monologue can inspire some people as it did to me.
Today I came to a realization: no amount of pain or suffering can take away the prospect of hope.  The vision of what lies ahead can become distorted by negativity and shame.  But today, I saw myself.  My future self.  I saw someone who has created positivity at a seemingly endless despair.

Who am I?  I am someone special.  A soul with good intentions.  A man with nothing but the shadows of the past slowly fading from his memory.  He came to me today to remind me that one day I will become you and that these experiences can make you stronger.

Today it’s do or die for tomorrow may never come.

So I say goodbye and embrace the feeling of love and peace that you have given me.  I look forward to seeing you again with strength in my eyes as I stare back at you in the mirror.
It’s from The Lifeline’s Reflections of Hope album (this track is the Reflections of Hope track), just in case you’re curious.

There is nothing more that I enjoy doing than reading books and writing. I'm kind of a nerd like that, XD. I have been writing for 7 years and am the author of the YA novel "Winged: The Awakening" and "Winged: The Unraveling". Also, a YouTuber dealing with video games and gaming.
