Have you ever had that feeling of being inadequate?
Feeling like nothing is ever going to change? Same old, same old.
You want things to change, but they never do.
It makes you sicker and sicker for each passing minute.
That's exactly how I feel, and how do you keep you hopes up, your mood or anything for that matter?
Of course there is a lot to be grateful for, but when you are feeling so down, so hopeless, so alone and like such a failure... it's hard to appreciate anything at all.

It's all my faulth, because there is so much more I can do.
I just feel like I don't have the energy,  guts or confidence to try, and feeling like that only backfires on me.

How do I get the strength to be who I am, do what I want and live as I lust, in a world that tells us who we should be, how we should look, how we should think and tells us how we should live?
People who are able to do that, are one of the courageous people in the world.

We're lucky enough to be able to live as good as we do, and then we make stress for ourselves on things that don't really matter.
You have to do this or that to look pretty and stay young as long as possible.
We create needs that weren't even there to begin with.
We make them life essentials, when they're really far from it.

It's a ****** up world that kills the freespirited mind and makes us all live in cages.
Cages where everything is already decided, and if you don't measure up, then you fail as a humanbeing.
The truth is you fail more following the norm. You fail more not following you heart.
You fail more not seeing the world as it is, and doing what you can to make a difference.
You fail yourself being a coward. You fail your life. You fail the world.
You fail.

If you really feel like a failure, reflect upon how you are living your life and analyze if you are living for you, or for those who want to hold you captive...
The minute you stop just blindly following the crowd, is the minute you stop failing and start succeeding.

The Fool
Flatfielder Jun 2018
Commitments for life
Their beauty their strength
A test came to find him
Didnt think too much in length

Hit it off in a wild way
What did he do
A night to remeber
Did they become friends?

He thought so
Her lifestory
Obsession it became
Emails he wrote with advice and goodwill

Replies sparse
Always to the point
A ****** theme no never a joint

As freespirited as they were
They stayed in touch
Frank bright and honest
Again he fell for her clutch
Her email not the longest
An invitation to lay near
Her body of begging
He did not have any fear
They met
as friends do and chat
Finally he begged  the question
Can i lay in your bed?

No was the answer
She curtailed his advance
To feel like a fool
And thanked her for the dance
#Forbidden love #oldfool #feelings #careless

— The End —
