Sometimes life can feel so lonely and as though no one "gets you." It's times like this when life feels like it's out to get you. Like it has this unbeatable doom for you to be alone FOREVER. I've experienced that feeling before. It's very uncomfortable to go through.
Some people are able to hold a pocket of hope in their mind's eye. A small yet not insignificant bit of fantasy that something, somewhere, someday is waiting on you to arrive to it. And when you do, everything makes sense.
Michael Vaccaro came across a poem once, and never let it go. Till this day, he carries that poem in his pocket. Today you're going to hear a story of how two men were connected years before ever meeting or knowing each other existed all because of a simple poem. The natural wonder that Michael had led him to hold onto this poem year after year after year. Then one day, he meets its author. What unfolds from there is pure beauty. This is a story that is bound to move you. It will most likely tug your heartstrings.
Before Michael ever met his husband, its as though he was emotionally protected by him - having this poem to put hope in. And after his husband left, he continued leaving blessings in Michael's life. Giving him the gift of awareness of what life is all about: something more, something more significant than the physical.
I hope you enjoy today's story.
It's important to note that Michael Vaccaro permitted me to use his story in today's episode. The audio used today was initially sourced from a video I came across on facebook called "That Moment Death Becomes Less Scary" and was produced by "Soul Pancake." LGBT Stories is not the original producer of this audio and own none of the rights to it. It's simply a beautiful story that I knew I wanted to share with you all here. Enjoy!
