We can not go,
This, I have said this to myself millions of times.
But, that day my heart took the driver’s seat.
My mind stopped working like a well-oiled machine.
I was in the middle of the urban jungle, the concrete city of cars, traffic, and cookie-cutter homes...
The land of squared, sanitized spaces, and constant noises from technology, automobiles, and the noise in our heads to keep up with the rat race.
I closed my eyes
Then, I opened them again.
A different reality!
A dream, of course!
I found myself in a jungle of green, moist, humid sweat.
This was the land of kaleidoscopic dreams;
The monkey’s howls pierce the air -
birds symphonically, swimming together in the air-
Life in every single layer of nature
I felt myself
Losing myself in the greenery
I had time to contemplate
In my contemplation, I decided, the only thing in life is real is the story I create in life
And as I go through the forest
My thoughts become more developed and articulated
I slash at everything that does not make sense
I slash at every idea
Every preconceived notion
Who I thought
I cut like a savage warrior
On a mission
Branches, dangling distractions
Temptations of fruits and branches that grab at my waist,
And more branches, like physical arms tieing me down like chains
I slash the blade
I cut with no intention of where I want to go
Exhausted, I rest my head
In the darkness in the middle of the amazon
A jaguar comes to me
With their yellow eyes waiting in the corner - It observes me in the bushes
I sit still
Is this a message for me?
Wanting to hear what I have to say
I wait and wait
I stay up all night.
As I wait for prophecies
The jaguar eventually leaves me alone in the darkness
Dissapointment rages inside me
I am left in more uncertainity
But, my heart spoke really loud today
Something took a hold of me
I was not rationale.
I was not cautious..
I opened my backpack and dumped everything off a cliff
I ran and jumped in the blue ocean
I listened to my heart
This is for all of those who do not know where life will take them. This is for all of those who are not sure where they want to go next. I think it is really, really important to just keep going and eventually you will find yourself just enjoying life. Chasing feelings, chasing your heart, and getting out of your head.
