Life is cast in light and shadows Some days, the darkness devours me whole Wraps around my mind, body and soul Dragging me down to the unknown Down, Down, Down… A bottomless pit, an endless void Smothering every sliver of light Shadows dissipate until darkness is all that exists My psyche clawing, demanding to find the lone ember The ember of light in this vault of nothing Kindling in the distance, embracing the faded flame The burn of a torch spearing through my cold frame A beacon, beckoning me Igniting the entity that illuminates inside Tugging me back to the ether An exhausting game of tug and war A lonely battle for a dark star - A.

Why do I see people rushing through life just to get to the next milestone?
Life is fleeting and we never know if our time will be clocked out before we are ready…
Sit down. Grab a cup of coffee or tea. Put your feet up. Get a book. Write. Whatever you want in that moment. But what you do need to do is…. Breathe.
… And that’s the tea.
What is our purpose? Where do we go from here?
This life we live is ours to take
People tell us what we should do, how we should think…
What’s the point?
Their meddling and unsolicited advice makes me want to drink
Craving the path that has not been traveled
Let them judge. Let them spew their biased opinions
The headache attached to them is not worth the hassle
Let us not follow the crowd
But to choose our own destiny and be proud.
