Today was beautiful outside and all i wanted to listen to were the cool, smooth lyrics of Alexi Murdoch.
Every time I stepped outside the words, “hold your head above water, and don’t forget to breathe” came into my head. We get so wrapped up in school (I’m among the worst) that we often forget that on days like today, hell on days like the past week, we have to go outside, take a deep breath and soak it in. Our days could be cut off at any point in time but that doesn’t scare me. No. What scares me is leaving this place, this moment in time, unchanged from who I was. “It’s a long road, we’ve been walking on. Brother, you know it is, you know it is. Such a long road we’ve been walking on.” Though the days seem long, the trials impossible there has to be a light somewhere. I look forward to the end of the class, the end of the day, the end of the week, the end of the semester. Why? I have an existence here. I have accomplished the most basic quality of life, be present. Well now, I want to “watch the sky breaking on the promise that we made. ” The promise to live life. To be wild. To be young. I have been having nightmares. I’m chained to the ground with nowhere to go. Just walking in circles until I perish. I am making a change. I am bettering myself and one day, somewhere in the future, I’ll fly. Because “every now and then, when I’m sleeping, I still have dreams that I am flying.”
