Yes! A semi-colon is used when a writer almost ends a sentence with a full stop but decides against it and continues the sentence by adding a comma to the full stop. Don’t you think you, me and pretty much everyone’s lives are quite like a sentence? Where you want to give up many times or simply quit by putting a full stop to your life, but the inner you however pushes you to give it another chance and then you put a comma under your full stop to continue your story?
My life is full of those dots and commas. A song from my school diary goes: “It takes courage to dare what no other will share, to be standing alone, one whom no one no one will own…” A dare; that’s what life is… a dare to change, a dare for a better you, a dare to risk another chance, a dare for your identity, a dare to compete your self-reflection and a dare to vanquish your past to be a conqueror in the future. So draw a semi-colon on your wrist to remind yourself that you chose to live, to give yourself another chance to risk, to dare and to be a hero, the protagonist of your own story. As was famously quoted by Princess Merida in the Disney movie, Brave: “Our fate lives within us; we only have to be brave enough to see it.”
So find your light and live and give yourself another beautiful chance to bloom because it is a blessing to be alive in a glorious world with glorious beings. And always remember that you deserve it… a life!
