Hard work and no mercy,
inflating with air, inflating inflating.
and finally enough to rise
so you take off,
on the way to freedom,
the way to be yourself,
to be free, to search for peace of mind.
But reality learns the hardest lessons, there is no mercy
sometimes your preparations aren’t enough,
no matter how hard you work, or how hard you try.
The possibility of getting captured,
and unanswered questions of why –
where dark clouds can come over, the wind changes direction without a warning sign
there is always something you can not control.
so sometimes that means that
sometimes you might get stuck
and you might have to change your plan
sometimes you might have to wait
or might have to figure out
how to get out of the maze
even if it’s not a maze
that trapped you.
