I walk a lonely road, through depths of a soul, a valley so unknown. Within my mind is born a hole, leftover from the fire of memories I can no longer behold. The blaze that passed through, burned for the passion we once knew. A spark of love and hate, a moment, the igniter. A chemistry of ice and fire.And within its flames we were burned raw to the core, deep into the marrow of our bones.Now we lay tired. Victims of our desire. And I stand alone. Staked to this abandoned pyre.
I want to share with you something I have learned in the past decade. When you’re little, all you can do is dream of growing up. Then you enter your teen years and you realize life moves too fast. Maturity teaches you the importance of focusing on the present and breathing in the moments before you lose it forever. For this reason, I’ve taught myself to live in the moment. But in my concentration on the present I forgot how to plan the next step. I stop now and realize that in letting go of my childhood naivete, I’ve forgotten how to dream of bigger things. And without the dream of tomorrow it can feel like you’re drowning. When you live life by the moments it’s easy to get lost and forget the point of it all. This is what I have learned. This is a mistake I aim to fix.
