Unseen Struggles I felt like a sprinter falling into last place, watching everyone else speed ahead. As I kept running, I began questioning whether I wanted to reach the finish line anymore. Life seemed like going through the motions, but I couldn't keep up, though everyone thought I was still close to winning.

Drifting in thought In the serenity of reflection, where the waters of contemplation lay smooth, the solid shore is not hidden but quietly affirmed by the city's silhouette. I often find myself contemplating, gently drifting in thought rather than caught in the struggle.  The horizon stands clear, and that visibility affirms my sense of direction. This leaves me balanced for thought rather than anchored in place. And so, I observe, uplifted by the knowledge perspective is a lens through which I can view my experiences.  Though my feet may be planted firmly where I stand, my ..read more
