“With a little turbulence, I lose control and right there I fall into a big giant hole.
Filled with a mysterious fog, unclear, of what’s right and what’s not. There seems no way out of it.
With the sunlight falling on my eyes, reflecting from an end of where I stand
I see a mirror lying on a corner and find myself walking towards it.
Standing in front of it, I see no sign of myself in it.
I’m in a constant struggle to be able to look at the mirror, and see myself beyond that dense fog of uncertainity and trying to reach for the reflections of hope, passion, dreams and compassion.
It’s uncertain; the emotions I possess, for I can feel it within but it’s lost in the clouds of vigilance and stress.
I saw some people I used to be really close to, fade away in front of me, taken in by the same luscious clouds of fog. I see them not making an effort to resist, for I know what’s inside, but on the outside, I might have misguided them for my wellbeing.
I can’t be motivated as of now, I am just stuck in a big hole that’s dug between the two roads that diverge into the woods, one that was the beaten track, and the other- the road not taken.
I see some people looking at me from the top of that hole, mistaking me to be too adventurous, for nobody likes to fall down into this, well afterall, life isn’t really a bed of roses.
I try my best but I see no way out, I feel I don’t have what it takes to gather the courage to climb up this hole and start to walk. I think I have tried my bit but its just too hard to be accomplished.
Little do I know if I even exist, for that mirror was a hoax and the dreams just a myth.
I hear people say don’t worry it’s okay, for they are not me and I have plenty of things to say.
Stuck in a limbo that (in order to reach success) theres no way to distress, for my strength is my weakness and my opportunity is my threat.”
