Looking over the plains of progress,
Thousands of flickering lights blind me.

The clouds of the past engulf me
And like a touch of acid,
They disappear.

The sirens off in the distance,
My ears are still ringing
From the explosion of unfamiliarity.

Like tears in the rain,
And eyes on a dead man’s face,
Everything fades away,
As will I.

“You don’t know who I am,” Said the man.
I assure you sir,
“I no longer care.”
Had a confrontation with an older gentleman at the weekend, indicative of my point in life.

are you doing,

or are you overthinking?

are you progressing,

or are you moving?

are you living,

or are you worrying?

do some.

progress more.

live.

At 25,
you'll read old conversations
at night
while having coffee
you'll think about your life,
how you never get enough sleep
and
thinking ways how to survive
work days until weekend
it feels like kind of a routine
but that's okay,
you'll get out of it someday.
Adulting under construction.

Trying to have something you never could
But still you try
Pushing yourself in the dirt
To just see the sunshine
For one taste of what it feels like to be free
You fight for it
Digging yourself out
Just to bury yourself in
One step forward and two back
You can't fight for forever
"So how are ya?"

Fine, I guess. I've been feeling really good and rlly happy the past weeks, but I'm so anxious. Like everything I built will just collapse and make me fall in a dark hole again. I actually didn't self-harm for over a month, so I'm kinda proud of myself.
A "poem" every day.

Baby steps
One at a time
Moving forward
Building slowly
Moving deftly
I am unstoppable
I wish I felt like this more often...
You have worked so hard. And dear, I hope you look back, and see how far you have come.  You have changed. You have grown. I hope that you embrace it

Attempting to be break from normalcy
Learning there is much more for me to see
The process may hurt
But there is no progress without work
Trying to break my shell
