In this world we grew strong. We learned how to survive together rather than alone. And we realized that we could achieve more than in our wildest dreams. In this world, we told each other don’t give up, you have friends, you are not alone, don’t give up, you have no reason to be ashamed. Don’t give up my friend, you still have got us. Don’t give up, you know it has never been easy but never forget we believe there is a place, a place where you belong, with us.
In this world, we shared our deepest joys and fears and we were never afraid of being judged if we brought out our true selves. In this world, we were a proud community. Proud of all our flaws and successes. We learned from our mistakes and we taught each other kindness. We lifted each other up and celebrated each other’s wins. We screamed whenever we needed to get the frustrations out.
In this world we taught each other to be stronger mentally, we made the mind a safe place and learned to drive away all the demons.
In this world we forgave and gave second chances. We were more patient and understanding. We no longer locked ourselves in the bathroom to cry and the pillow stopped being our companions when we cried our hearts out and prayed for a break.
In this world, we called each other up and cried to our friends. They listened patiently and let us bear ourselves to them. In this world vulnerable became the new strong and no longer was seen as weakness.
In this world we communed together, and learned to look each other in the eye and ask what is the matter. We learned to trust more and accept each other as we were without needing to change or be anything we were not.
In this world we saw no color, no race, no sexual orientation, no religion and no class. Because we had promised to avoid making the same mistakes of the past. We knew that even if we begun small, it would birth a healthier culture, that will grow into a beautiful tree,one whose roots will spread to every corner with its goodness. whose leaves will never dry out even in the hottest summer. Because when the leaves are too weak to hold on, the roots find a way to send new hope up there. In this world, we held each other together.
In this world, we believed in Love. The truest and purest kind that came from within. One that just was.
In this world, We did better and we didn’t stop at that😊.
