To the Children

Poetic Versus of the Wisdom Keeper

Children that come after me, this wisdom keeper has knowledge to share and I would tell you that you can make money in a thousand different ways, that there are a million different ways to live your life. I would tell you that it will take years to uncover what society has told you to be. That it will take years to discover, uncover and dive into your depths to find your true self. That there is no quick fix, that there is no surface level, read a book and magically you will find yourself truer. That it will take time sitting with yourself, feeling unproductive, feeling like you don’t know where to start, like you’re wasting time and that that is where the work is. I would tell you that the best thing you can do for this society is to make it better by challenging it by asking more or asking less of it. By changing our ways for the better and to not just settle. I would tell you dear ones, that we have fucked up. We have been dominated by one aspect of ourselves for the longest time and everyone has suffered because of it. I would tell you that the best thing you can do for yourself is to feel and to sit with yourself, to journal, to write, to dissect and to think about what is you and what is not. And again, to feel like you are going nowhere when you do this work, but there will be these moments when everything comes together. This work I ask of you is hard. To sit and ponder and rewrite a sentence or think a thought over and over again. It’s truly difficult to dive into parts of yourself that you have buried and kept hidden because you didn’t want to see them. I would tell you that it’s hard to even know how to begin, but begin we must because this my friend, is one of the best things you could do.
