Our lives our measured in moments, and sometimes them moment change your life forever. Sometimes you got to grow before you want, you got to move on.
The above quote is from a Play, by José Cruz González
In many ways the above quote is about my life. There are many moments which have changed my life forever- many of them have helped me arrive to the places I am right now- this blog spot about one Emotional brothas coming of age.
I'm currently 26 years old. However, I am not a 26 year old man; you see I am half man/half boy. My life expereinces have in many ways never allowed me the chance to grow up or move on. Afterall, I am a wanderer. I left my hometown 7 years ago to wander the world for something new, refreshing, not so stale, and I have been disappointed for the most part, or better yet maybe depressed is a better word. You see, that is the boy in me, he/I always looks on the bright side, trust and expects things from people normally only to be let down. On the contrary the man in me has little faith left in mankind. In many ways the man has become numb from years of abuse and only survives with the assistance of the boy. The man and boy are insaperable and one in the same.
The man in me is what has helped me to survive all these many years beyond my original home in a small town in New Jersey. The boy inside me is the driving force behind much of the man's actions.
It's amazing how one moment can you change your life so quickly. Years ago, I fell in love with someone. It was a deep love, a love
In retrospect what did I know about love at 16, 17, 18, or 19 years old? No more or less than I do today.
