The closer to our goals we come- the harder we work. Or is it really harder? I feel like it’s just constant. Why is this our reality? When does it stop? Is it growing up? We are constantly drowning- because we create our lives to be that way. Why do we see beauty in the stress of being overextended- why do we think it’s how you find happiness and the beauty in life? Water is our everything yet could result in death. What is the beauty in the process of taking our gasping breaths? We are drowning ourselves wondering what will fulfill us. The stop of motion, water being weightless- everything being muted. It’s a separate reality. I find myself so stressed out that I want to sit in zero gravity. Mentally and physically exhausted but always anticipating the future. When I am stressed I sit in the shower with the lights off and just let the water hit my limp body. Where would my brain go if I just stopped? Why do I want so much yet feel the strains of life competing for my happiness?
