Hope for a Better Moment
~ Morrel Lane – Downtown – 12:00 AM~
Life has a funny way of changing all around us, constantly leaving us in the dark on what lies ahead.
The future is unsure and that cloud of rain feels like it’ll never leave your side.
But even in the darkest of nights, there is still a glimmer of hope as long as your faith remains strong.
Reminder of Better Times
My grandfather was known to be a cheerful and awfully generous man, holding the crown to be the most selfless human in own home town.
Each time I’d pay a visit round his house it was always an emotional trip driving down that road and finally seeing his big house with my grandmother always waiting outside for us.
Unfortunately, the fun and games had to come to an end when he came down to a critical point in his life, and as someone who just entered adulthood it was a rather shocking and frightful time in my life.
Once he had departed it took a while for it to dawn on me as I continued to regurgitate the same emotions I once had when driving down to his home.
Life eventually led me to leave all the emotions behind as I met someone special, which I shared a thousand memories with.
It felt real, it felt like we’d last forever.
Two years later and things had changed, the love we had together became stale as we kept fighting over the little things, we soon became bored of each other and only started tolerating one another’s presence.
We soon broke it off, but the habits we used to share together continued on, leading me to where I am now.
In a cold space with little to nothing to do but stare at the four walls in Morrel Lane.
During these cold hours my grandfather’s words would warm my soul, he would always tell me to keep an eye on the Lord’s promises, a seed that was sowed into me since my childhood, helping me now to keep myself going for each moment of each day.
