Hey Kid - Act II

Hey kid,

So, you raised your head up finally, didn't you? You really were listening to me the last time we spoke. The last time 'this'... experience... all began.

...it's been a hell of a journey so far, huh?

I understand how you must be feeling right now. And, believe me, you're not alone in wondering if this is all 'too good to be true'. But, you know what, kid...? At some point, you need to face facts. You need to smell the roses.

You need to wake up - so that way, everybody else can too.

...Aren't you getting it by now, kid...?

. . .

There was a rift, wasn't there? Something happened to you. I can feel it glowing, but, let's be honest - you're too busy to notice it's been on you the entire time. You were always enough, kid. You just needed to figure that out on your own.

It's funny, but... you really thought the world was falling apart back then, didn't you?

Yet, little did you know...

...some of your worst battles were yet to come. Weren't they?

Some, especially, within yourself.

. . .

It's called 'growing up', but does it ever stop? Do these challenges... these obstacles... these memories you keep plucking out like daggers each morning...

...do they ever...

...do they ever...

...stop?

. . .

I don't know, kid... I don't know. But, before I go - I'll tell you this:

Something special is about to happen, kid. You won't know what. You won't know when. You just need to understand - there's a reason you're still standing. There's a reason you're still here.

...So, keep waking up, will ya, kid? We can't wait forever, you know.

We've got places to be.
