Please Turn The Page

The Road Now

You choose to judge me on my looks

You see me  as if closed

Yet I have opened up

About my current situation

I being stripped of all material things

You don’t even care to turn the pages

The pages that reveal that which I really am

I stand before you

A victim of bad decisions

You see nothing worth time

My situation could happen to anyone

It is happening to many

It could  happen to you

Judge me by my cover

You will not see

The pick I hold

Yet I hold it with


I hold it with pride

You can not to see the gold

The gold which the pick will uncover

Turn the pages

Set us both free

With a chance of

The dignity of a paycheck

    Dad keep your head up, the people who matter are the ones who will read the book. the rest aren’t worth your time. You have not made any bad decisions, bad things come up so that we can overcome them and grow stronger. Your life is much different then it used to be, just take a look at what you have been doing since i left! It looks like your enjoying a part of life that you never really had a taste of before… the part of life i have always followed my heart toward just to enjoy life and live your dreams and have good friends. I have made bad decisions but i am very happy where my life has taken me and you should be proud to be where you are, with people who love you and son who couldnt be more proud of who his dad is now. Money and the things we have or didnt have in our lives never took away from the great memories we had and all the ones you and i have before us that we havent even made yet. Let go of what people view as important and embrace life as it comes and take ever opportunity to do what sounds like a good fun idea! I have always said and my actions have shown this hence me being a marine, but money doesnt matter, the friends you keep and the positive impact you make on someones life is worth so much more then gold and paper. I love you and I miss you and I am very proud of who you are now and who you always have been. A great father, a amazing friend and someone who has given his loving son more then he could have ever asked for in his life. Thank you

    people have always judged me in the way that they are judging you. you just have to smile and say oh well and show them how great you really are and what they are missing by not being apart of your life

    Love Dad
