... but just a statement of what I have come to witness in others. For those who read my following passage, keep in mind it is not something which I look to find, yet a discovery of what I have come to cherish in the few I have found with the same insights...
I have come to realize that some people who have more faults than most, and a misdirected aim in relationships, can completely overlook all their own faults to simply lay blame on others and justify self gratifying behavior to the rest of the world.
I have faults and a realism which defines most of days. I have negativity in the way in which I look out onto the world. I have also come to see how the world has lost commitment, kindness, and respect for one another.
Why do people not have time in the 21st century for true love? Maybe undying love has permanently molded itself into a sickening instant gratification. Maybe it is a primal fear of getting involved with a sincere person who may break through the protective wall. Maybe it is just a subtle trepidation of sharing any part of true feelings, because it allows vulnerability.
I have taught myself how to truly love another- How to sacrifice all I am, yet I am still strong enough to stand here for everyone to see. I have exposed myself; my emotions unscripted and bare. While I have written of the love I dream of, I am also a realist. My chance to ever find these thoughts returned is slim if any. Because I need a someone who can erase all the ways they had been approached by others. Someone intelligent enough to see into the depth of my eyes and understand that maybe I am different. Someone who has not simply allowed themselves to be defined by the cliches of the times. One who does not follow only in the pressures of what he witnesses in the approach to the world by others, yet can place himself amiably in the direction of the path of his soul.
So if you too can hold the beauty of love and commitment in the highest regard. If you too believe sincerity has been replaced by a self gratification. If you can see a soul of another human being by just looking into their eyes, or at least that they have hidden their soul from view. If you also find the romance of the ages lost in the modern world, I would love to hear from you. I would love to learn of others who also feel as I do. For once my time on Earth has passed by; I wish only to have people talk about the most beautiful romance ever known through history. A love that was boundless. A love that could only have been born through the eyes of true romantics. I do not wish to find a fairy tale. I wish to create one.
And I would love to hear from anyone who too holds thoughts like these. NOT to build this connection because I am not looking for it. Just due to the respect I would give another soul who can appreciate such thoughts. Anyone mature enough to appreciate the mind and the rights we have to express that mind. I truly want to meet anyone with a depth in their soul - who can inspire another soul with their thoughts and emotions. Especially those open to share that gift through the arts.
