I’d like to tell you that I won’t run when you come, like most people do. I will not flee, I will not hide.
This is not a proud boast.
I am not challenging you. This is not a threat.
This is just a promise. When we are face to face, I will look you in the eye.
I will not succumb to fear, doubt, regret or guilt. I have none.
I’ve been on the path seeking you for years now. I am waiting for you to step out of the shadow and pursue me. Yes, I have been waiting.
Not because I have seen all I wanted to see; felt all I wanted to feel; or loved all the ones I wanted to love. But because I have known you are going to drag me away, since I was five years old.
I know you wait until some are breaking down and are quite old, before you go down on them. I won’t be either. Make your move. I am still strong in muscle and mind.
I don’t doubt your victory over me. I am sure rather. But if you come now, you will take a warrior spirit along.
See you around.
