Despair Towards Freedom

It catches You and You are done.

Knowing life, the beautiful side of it, gone.

Now the climb up, or to a new place in time, must start.

It can be hard. There is a grey wherever You look.

Even the words You speak and listen to, taste like sawdust.

Underneath it all lies acceptance, acceptance of who we are.

Maybe I am a loser, a nobody who does not know anything. Can’t do nothing, is worthless in the eyes of society. It might just be that accepting that takes me towards freedom.

We shall see.
