It is good there are two of us and you know that it is the reason why you are never alone.
At 15 years old you make decisions many adults are not capable of. I always wonder why you are that strong, how come you are always right and see long before others what is really going on.
No one needs to wake you up. You see it clear, very clear although not a single soul believes you.
They call you naive, arrogant, haughty, too proud even hateful. You walk straight up, keep your head up in the sky and seldom speak a word.
You are definitely an old soul and that is why your friends are twenty years older and look like children to you.
It is hard to live in a white world if you are not one of them.
It is hard to stand for who you are, develop your own opinion, yourself, without any support. It is true, you had no childhood, were unwanted before you were even born but you know what?
The best thing about you is that you are a personality and never gave up on yourself. You believed in you not in what the others said or thought. That is what is scary to most people and the fact you never wanted to be a sheep in the cattle.
Do you remember what you decided at the age of 7? Once 15 you left. It was a brave thing to do and you not only did it for you! You hoped it would give the others a better life. They never thanked you for it but hated and haunted you.
Not much later you started a life of your own. You studied and worked.
Not a moment you are filled with hate or self-pity but you simply go on and make the best out of it.
Here we are now. It's 2020 and it was never planned you were still alive.
Any other person would have given up decades ago, died or was locked in forever. You only grew stronger and turned out to be my only hero and best friend. It is good to have you around. If times are tough I think of what you managed and everything turns out to be a piece of cake and works out just fine.
I will always love you, you are the best.
