This one appears to be a struggle between the simple life and the extraordinary life. Clearly, I’ve never wanted anything to be simple and so, I’ve always resisted this notion. This, by the way, happens to push away anyone who tries to convince you otherwise. Creativity takes a lot of time and there are those who will never understand this. They will want you to give up on your dreams and be just like them because they know, for a fact, that dreams don’t come true. However, if you live long enough, you will see that you have moved on and that you are always moving to a better place!
Writings About Water/Fire
There’s a reason it permeates your subconscious and you should always listen:
I’ve never been afraid of water
Even when I pushed my limits
By going too long without air
Until my chest experienced
Brief pain and panic
I always surfaced – unaffected
In my dreams,
I hang out underwater all the time
I can swim to the ocean floor
No person can follow me
Sometimes I find one frolicking on the surface
And I save them from the panic
I lift them and take them to shore
Last night, however,
I found myself choking on some waves
What does that mean?
Finding comfort in your skills is never an easy thing. All creativity chokes us up a little. . .
This one is obvious. No matter what, don’t let anything stop you from doing what you need to do. Let it burn if it tries. You will rise from the ashes!
