Dreams in the Mirror: Part 6

Look up and you’ll know
We share these stars wherever you go
Galactic processes merging together hydrogen with other elements
In a universe of infinite possibility
On this rock, we are free
But only if we acknowledge this fact
That we are not alone
We don’t fight this struggle as one
But as many
People together betting
On a better day
Thankful for our Sun today
Getting by in our own way

I love this world and I wish to stay
Yet I’m aware and afraid
Of losing my consciousness
After living life with foolishness
How did it all come to this
Looking for love but only finding lonelinesss

But now I see in simpleness
A bliss exists my gaze can miss

Next: Part 7 – 8/7/2014


Dreams in the Mirror is a 10 part series. It began as a short bit I wrote while venting about self-directed frustrations. During my recent Spring semester, I had gotten lazy with my studies and personal projects. Feeling extremely dissatisfied, I processed my feelings through writing what is now Part 1. Several months later, after the semester had ended, I now find myself commuting to my dream job. During my work-bound train-rides I have downtime to think and to write. I came across Part 1 and began writing responses. The subsequent 9 parts are all focused on answering the frustrations of my past and building hope for the future. This piece has been fundamental in my recent mindset toward life and I’m very happy that I have the ability to share it with the world.
