LONLINESS

~~Message in a Bottle~~ “Someone can hurt you more than you deserve because you loved them more then they deserved.” I do not know who you are, but I know nobody in the world should feel they are not worth the love and companionship every mortal yearns for. We each have a desire to love and to be loved. Whether you are as free and beautiful as a bird or caged and scarred as a beast…Love is the one thing that makes us feel alive again and gives us hope for tomorrow. You may not be trapped behind iron bars, your walls may not be made of concrete and your bed may not be as cold and heartless as steel but deep down we both “know” the prison I live in can be called a fairy tale, compared to the one you’re in. If anyone knows the pain and anger that comes with betrayal, it is the man writing these words on paper. If anyone knows the sadness and emptiness that comes with having their heart ripped out and stomped on it, is the man behind this ink. If anyone is out there who can relate…I want you to know, even though it feels like it…You’re not alone. Everyone say love hurts, that’s not true. Loneliness hurts, rejection hurts, losing someone hurts, betrayal hurts. Everyone confuses these with love, but in reality, love is the one thing in this world that covers up all the pain and makes us feel wonderful again. To some reading these words, I might just be down the road. To others, it could be 100’s of miles. There may even be a few who can only be reached by sea. But to all, this is my “message in a bottle”. I’m only a letter away. ~~~ Because of Love, Jesse Cantu

ONE DAY

“One Day” We are born in one day. We die in one day. We can change in one day. And we can fall in love in one day. Anything can happen in just one day. So many people are scared of being hurt that they close themselves off from being loved. Let someone love you just the way you are - as flawed as you may be, as unattractive as you sometimes feel, and as uaccomplished as you think you are. To believe that you must hide all the parts of you that are broken, out of fear that someone else is incapable of loving what is less than perfect, is to believe that sunlight is incapable of entering a broken window and illuminating a dark room… Have you ever shared your soul with a stranger only to realize he was a long lost friend? Have you ever talked to a man the way you talk to a woman and share what you can’t with other men? Can you picture your friendship and love being given to a criminal stuck in this hell? Can you promise to hold off from judging him until the day when you really know him well?.... “It’s impossible”, said pride. “It’s risky”, said experience. “It’s pointless”, said reason. “Give it a try”, whispered the heart. All it takes is just one day.
