Which way? 

Staring into nothingness as my mind wondersI see so much that my mind thunders

And sometimes I feel so trapped I tumble through traps

Life telling me I should be doing this and that

So do your studies young man it’s essential

Then go to uni because you have potential

Then get married and up your financial, buy a house and get a job make sure you get dental.

But what if I don’t want to take the road most travelled

What if I’d prefer to see what’s out there and travel

What if my opportunities differ to yours

What if I chose to just take a pause

Then does that suddenly make me essentially flawed.

Because you think I’m wasting time because I’m bored

Does my voice suddenly get drowned to whisper 

because your ideology was not my kismet

Or am I allowed to let go and be free  

Am I allowed to to say fuck it and just be me…

First in a while….

I walk, miles at a time,

but only in my mind,

It seems the worlds design

Relies on us find,

But what,

I don’t know

Because in my search I’m blind

So I put my hands out and I just begin to climb.

And though I may slip n descend into a bottem less pit

Something always catches me before I lose my shit.

And then epiphany hits like the bullet from a clip

So the next time I climb I’m higher before I slip.

Because the thing I am searching for is not a thing at all

Because searching for things leaves us wanting more

These things we want, objects of our desire,

fleeting feelings causing emotions to transpire,

are merely just distractions from climbing higher

I must clear my mind or fall like I did prior.

See the truth is there is nothing to find

the bottomless pits are cages of the mind

So rather than focusing on the possession of objects

I’ll keep climbing till I am more than desires complex.
