The world is a really different place today. I’m sure everyone sees it. Everyone feels it. I often feel like there has been a shift, a drastic change to what was the norm. Have we jarred awake in a different dimension? In the outside it seems so, but the inside? My personal surroundings? Doesn’t look like there’s much change.
Life and time slows down for no one. It’s funny how the internal struggles and other things we deal with linger. I know it’s like that with me. Holding on, or just plain stuck in the rut that I, or my circumstances have created. Stagnant. Getting old and calcifying the heart and the soul, or what’s left.
I need to wake up. We need to wake up. Letting go of things we don’t need to hold onto, and latching on to the things we should. Can’t let the past form and dictate our present or future. I am guilty of this. Let it go for way too long, ignoring the signs. I, the fool.
Past pains and pressures can hurt at the time, but truly pain is temporary. Using the positive as a light to shine and eradicate the darkness that always rears its ugly head is a must. Not so easy, I know. Believe me, I know.
I constantly torture myself. Taking one step forward and two steps back. At least I make the effort to move forward. At least I try. Trying is half the battle. But it seems more like a war. A war within. A war that needs to start by winning the battles.
I have what I need. The tools to break down and build. Need to utilize them more even though the outside world and inside world has its challenges. Get up, stand up. Change the world, external and internal.
Current listen : Korn – Get Up
“Times are looking grim these days
Holding on to everything
It’s hard to draw the line
And I, I’m hiding in this empty space
Tortured by my memories
Of what I left behind”
