Chains

Never a moment

Written in code

Souls protection 

Needing expression 

Heart full of smoke 

Blackness filling the void

Cold through my bones

Consumed by dread and fear 

Needing liberation 

Freedom from my chains 

To fly above the darkness 

Watch it wallow

And never return 

Empty

It starts with wide wonderful eyes, full of expectation behind those first cries. 

Each year older, feelings turn colder. 

What once was innocence is seen only in the distance, leaving us with resistance.
Then we are found unconcenting and numb. With the goal of survival, when all is said and done. 

But I have a plan… that doesn’t involve a man. 

And I will take it when I can, to be free. Truely and completely with just me. 

We can’t do it all! 

I say to myself every night that I must get at least eight hours sleep. Go to bed earlier. Don’t be tempted by my phone. But here I am again, on my phone at half past 12 midnight. The reason for this I am highly conscious of, yet I make no effort to tackle the issue. 

Every day for me is a challenge. How much can I cram in. Work, Hobbies, Education, Family, Friends. Today consisted of practicing piano, speaking French, revising for exams, yoga, remembering to eat 3 meals, drink lots of water….. ect. How exhausting! 

It is the fear of missing something, the fear of not being worthy and the fear of not achieving all we can before we leave this earth that is what drives us to take part in these crazy schedules. Well, the moral of the story is that we can’t do it all. We need to be comfortable with how we prioritise our time and recognise that we are not superhuman. Take pride in the little things, like being with family even if there are so many other things on your to do list. What would you rather say on your death bed? I’m glad I got that promotion or I’m glad I have a family that cherishes me. I know what I would choose.
