Ledger

“Brother dear,

I know that you’ve tried. You stayed on your course and never deterred. You’ve done your best and now you’re jaded. You feel like all your efforts wasted. Your time evaporated. Your energy dissipated.

Boy you’ve been good your whole life. You’ve dodged all the knife and strife. You’ve remained true to your teaching. But, brother, the world doesn’t owe you anything. After all you’ve done, it might not blink. It leaves you feeling indistinct.

But, don’t shrink. Don’t let it douse your ember. Let out your anger. Submit to your rage. Go out and rampage. And after your desire has been quenched, remember that you’re made of a good clay.

Don’t you ever stray.

One day, thing will sway your way.

I promise.”
