I Was Here

 

Hello stranger I know I haven't spoken to you in a while ,but This time I come bring good news I found something that keeps me going.   Someone is counting on me to win!

"I will leave my mark so everyone will know I was here. And know that I meant something in somebody's life the heart that I've touch will be the proof that I leave that I made a difference.   And this world will see I was here."

"I will leave my mark so everyone will know I was here. And know that I meant something in somebody's life the heart that I've touch will be the proof that I leave that I made a difference.   And this world will see I was here."

     These past few days has been so great for me and I will tell you why.   This boy came walking into my job and he is 9 years old he is a little asian boy very inquisitive he always asking me questions and looking at me with a smile on his face waiting for me to reply.   His face made me feel so good and this is because I know children hearts are pure and are untainted and see the world as this amazing thing because they are not old enough to know how the world really is.   I see myself in this little boy this boy brings me so much joy because I'm someone who he enjoys and trust in I have to take this chance to help this boy and teach him about everything that is good with the world with also letting him know that life will be hard, but you have to keep going.   This boy mother is a single mom working a regular job with no baby sitter and while she works she bring him everyday to her job so he comes to my job and I watch him while she work so he doesn't get in trouble.   I made it my effort to meet he's mom so she knows who I'am and that someone is making sure her son isn't going to get in trouble.   Risking my job doesn't phase me because I believe what I'm doing is right and I actually enjoy his company doing the right thing always make me feels good.   This boy does not have his father in his life and I'm not trying to replace him ,but filling in as a older brother or  mentor makes me feel a deep connection because I did not have a father growing up either.   He said to me he wishes his mother didn't work so much and I told him "Your mother is a strong woman and she is doing the best she can, you don't understand now but one day you will and you will thank her.   Not many people can do what she is doing."    He looked at me confused ,but I said one day you will understand what I'm saying and this reminded me of what L.T.O is and that is giving back and touching people lives in ways that will forever make them a batter person.   I just them to know that I gave my all did my best brought someone some happiness left this world a little just because i was here.     It feels great to be someone superman or role model for lack of better words.   So in conclusion I will step into this role and I will keep pushing because I want him to one day say "Hey Donte' made someone of himself and I can to."   And I cannot wait until that day I promise I will break down and cry because now I have a focus point and another reason to keep pushing to keep being the best I can because someone is looking up to me someone is depending on me to keeping living and striving.   Children are a wonderful thing before meeting him I didn't wait kids ,but because I met him and can see myself reconsidering.   I want to say thank you young man ,because of you I will keep going and not give up because you are a heart that I have touched and I will make sure to keep bring joy and light to everyone.
