I hope you look up to the sky in wonderment

We too were once in awe of this miracle of a universe

I hope you find the will to carry on

We too were once suffering from our own mental ailments

I hope you explore every inch of your curiosity

We too were once held back by historical restraints

I hope you imagine a future full of brightness

We too were once enamored by the fire we created

I hope you continue to move forward even by inches

We too were once in a hurry to complete in this imaginary race

I hope you grow up and are content with your blessings

We too were once never satisfied with our ungratefulness

I hope you run and never give up on your dreams

We too were once in competition with our very own greed

I hope you follow the path that best suits you

We too were once masters of our destinies until the sun disagreed

I hope you learn success in all the microscopic details

We too were once obsessed with hoarding valuable things

I hope you look past differences and accept yourselves

We too were once in a race against ourselves and we already lost

I hope you find peace with yourself and with the world that lies in ruins

We too were once given much and now, your inheritance is nothing
