A Pink Whale In a Blue Sea


I can tell you ten things about life but can you tell me one thing you’ve learned? You, my friend, see the world as black when really it’s blue and there’s nothing I can do or say to change your mind. I won’t try to understand you because I know you got your struggles and I got mine too. 

But hang your smile out in the sun and let it dry up because life isn’t all about getting money––it’s about getting happiness, getting loved, getting freedom, getting salvation, and––find that one thing that sets your soul on fire, but don’t burn yourself in the fire. 

We talk about how we want this and we want that, and we don’t need that, but no one ever asks their fellow man, what can I give you that I don’t have? You have to realize that life is a piece of metal, to heat it up; you have to strike with all your might. How many of us give our all? See, quitting does not equal to failure but the failure to realize that it is time to quit is like boiling a rock and expecting it to soften up in––within how long?

But listen, I’ve got a plan for us. No matter how old or young we are, we can all leap from the roof above our head, then shoot for the stars and land on the moon. But then again, the first mistake we made is limiting ourselves to the moon. Nonetheless, I have only one rule in life and that is to take the road less traveled. I will do what you haven’t done, or do more than what you have done. Either way, I’m not trying to be something that I’m not, I‘m becoming everything I will be––making sure there’ll be no other copy of me on earth. We’ve all heard this saying, you only have one life to live but how many of us live it as if we have twenty thousand other chances for a do over? We’re not Being Erica. We have one life to live, let’s cease this one like it’s our first and last, and be nothing less than Mr. and Miss. you.
