In this monologue, Dasana talks to her boyfriend in order to lift his spirits about continuing on with his passions.
DASANA: You’re a genius and you don’t even know it. Or maybe you do know it but you are not one hundred percent sure because you don’t have financial success. Well, I got news for ya. You ARE a success. You ARE special. You ARE a genius. I see it everyday. I see you create these wonderful worlds that just happen. I see these little miracles everyday. I see the magic in you.
You can’t ever give up. You can’t ever give up on what your passions are.
You walk around with your badass attitude and I love that about you but you don’t need to always be this tough street guy who likes to wear leather jackets and be macho man. You also have that sensitive side that you try to hide but it’s always there in your eyes.
You have been through so much and you are such an inspiration. It’s amazing that you are where you are with everything that happened in your life.
You can’t stop now. You need to keep going forward. You’ve come this far. You need to keep the light on inside of you.
I’ll walk with you.
In this short play, DASANA tries to talk sense to her boyfriend BENJAMIN, who is a writer not too pleased with his short story output to make a living.
