The Answer

“For you and me,
I think staying in limbo
is the better option.”

I’m not sure what to believe any more these days. I don’t know whether I’ve hit a crossroads and I just don’t know which direction to turn. I’m not even sure if there’s anything actually changing. At least on the outside. But on the inside, I feel like something has shifted. Whatever it is, it’s almost tangible, like I can feel it crawling beneath my skin. Like maybe, it’ll make itself known sooner rather than later.

I’m not sure if I want anything to change — especially not for the worse. And I suppose, that’s part of the problem. I’m always expecting life to knock me down, not to help lift me up. Maybe nothing will happen. I suppose there’s only one way to find out. I have to let it happen, whatever it may be.

  1. When we encounter the need to change; when we decide to engage change, how can we know if it will be for the better or the worse? Doesn’t matter, the point is to go with the change because a static life is death.
