Lost! Lost in the sea of darkness, searching the depths of the mind in hopes that something will appear. Where to look next… How to trigger the dose of adrenaline and excitement that flows after the realization that this is the thing. The idea that will make it feel better. Take away the torment of not knowing the next move.
Fighting to see the vision, looking for the inspiration. Inspiration to continue, inspiration to move forward. Trickling down the neural pathways, appearing for a millisecond but vanishing as quickly as it had appeared. Leaving behind a deeper desire to fulfill the longing that is left behind. Cruel is the brain to tease the synapses with enough neurotransmitter to give a glimpse but not the whole view.
What to do, what to say, how to move forward… Will it fly? Will anyone care? Is it worth thrashing against the shield that restrains the thoughts in the compound of the skull?
It is! It has to be! There would be nothing in this world if those who led the pack didn’t fight through the swamps of matter to conceive what was felt, what was desired, what was known to be needed. So, follow the leaders, follow the heart, follow what is known to be true.
"If a thing is worth doing, it is worth doing well. If it is worth having, it is worth waiting for. If it is worth attaining, it is worth fighting for. If it is worth experiencing, it is worth putting aside time for." - Oscar Wilde
