4 years with Glaucoma as of Feb 24th. This was one of the last photoshoots I did with both my eyes and without the dark glasses. My eye looks a little off here, but rest assured it was normal. I was just being a flirt with the camera winking at it, haha. That old version of me was a little more outgoing. I wish I had that still. I think I do, i just gotta search for it in me. I was at a point in my life where I was ready for something big. In fact I still am. I have never been more ready for something big, but sometimes a journey from a boy to a man is never easy. I grew up faster than most people my age. I also got sick at a young age. I guess my twenties where meant to be lived out later in life huh? To this boy with the fire in his eyes, I hope I can honor what we have done. There is never enough words to say about this experience. I still mourn who I used to be. It’s almost like he died and I was left to pick up the pieces. Through it all even in my darkest hours, I still believe something beautiful can come from broken. I was given a voice to use. No matter how down I have been, I must remember, even if it doesn’t seem like a lot, I have touched peoples lives. Somewhere out there is another young Dom Baza that just got their world shaken up. I hope that one day my story and my voice can be the guide I never had, for them. These next few months will be a very transformative period as I head into surgery 6 and recovery. I hope I stay as strong as I can, cause let me tell you, it is getting harder. I thank you for your love, support and prayers. It means the world to me. Something has gotta give, I just hope I get my 2nd chance to do it all right. I just want to make you proud, I just want to make this kid proud and finish what we started. As everyone always says Dom Baza is one of the strongest guys I know. He never fails, he always finds a way to do it all right and rise. I hope I can find that part of me again.
