Hey there! I hope this finds you well. I was going through my old files this morning and I saw this letter I addressed to myself about six years ago. It made me laugh and connect the dots so I’ve decided to share it with you. It’s funny how time flies. Now that I recall, it was crazy back to the time. Lord, it’s been a long ride so far!

/A Letter to Me of the Future.
Dear me of the Future,
I know one day you will come to read this letter from you of the past
I also know this, what I am about to tell you is pretty weird
but that’s what happened in your past and in my present.
I know it sounds crazy, but it’s fair enough to let you know.
Today, January 23, 2015, it’s my day off and I am at home reading and writing as usual.
A knock at the door, I hurry to open, I was not expecting anyone to visit.
Perhaps one of the two lovely cousins you were living with.
There’s a pretty cute lady at the door looking for one my sisters.
Something insane has just happened. Guess what,
She rushed into my mind and won’t let it free.
I can’t stop thinking about her anymore.
How possible! This might be because you were somehow weak when it comes to girls.
I hope you found a way to free your mind from that lady of your past.
I hope you became stronger and embraced the monster inside.
Today, I’m afraid I can’t do anything to help you.
I can’t stop thinking of her and guess what, it’s my first time seeing her.
Now I am listening to my favorite tubes and writing you this letter.
I hope it found you well and much stronger than I am today.
Please don’t you be mad at me cause I just can’t stop
how I feel about the girl and the craziest part of it all is
I can’t tell her how I feel.
I don’t even know what tomorrow has for me.
I don’t know her but I’m afraid I could hurt her if I make her fall for me.
I hope you did find a loophole.
I am down the pit, totally going down.
Now I have to go, please tell me you did succeed.
You’re my only hope, the reason why I’m sacrificing everything today.
Show me my sacrifices were worth enough and we both succeeded.
I hope you of the future is quite smarter than I am.
Obviously I still have a lot to learn.
Please help us out. Don’t let us down. You are our only hope.
Be stronger than me, ladies are not so easy to love.
You’re weak when you let them in your life forever.
Even weaker when you try to fight up.
I don’t know how but I know I can count on you.
I know you will never have a chance to see me,
though you can still learn a lot from me to better who you’re.

I hope you’ve found a way to build our dreams. You owe me that. Don’t you ever forget it. /
