i was having trouble finding a title. but i picked this because i feel like it is a metaphor encapsulating the piece itself. did it succeed as a title or should i look for other ideas?

a losers guide to winning

November 25, 2020


imagine being lost.
no idea which ways up or down.
you reach for heaven 
instead grasp hell.
no perception of direction.
that's left 
that's right
that's right 
that's left.

imagine the world as a blurred microscope.
no detail 
no bigger picture

imagine running
the second you see the finish line 
the end vanishes,
then time speeds up
you're moving at the same pace.
collapsing into a moment in time.
i have been feeling kind of weird lately. ive kind of lost motivation in things i used to like. and my whole idea of who i am has completely shifted. i wish i could slow down time to figure it all out.

    This is such an incredible piece, and I have definitely felt the same way before! We all go through that weird phase of trying to figure ourselves out at some point in our life, but trust me; you've got the power to find your way again and re-learn who you are (hope that makes sense xD) <3

    Oh noooo! I'm no psychologist or therapist, but I do wish you the best of luck trying to find yourself again. :) I read your other piece and all your pieces just feel so heartfelt. Anyway, once again, beautiful piece!
