A constant drive to survive. The incessant push to stay alive. Drilled into me when I was a child. Mom always said I knew how to survive. But to put so much attention on staying one step ahead of death – it takes a toll. Forever climbing up that endless hill.

I’ve lost touch. I think I’ve lost my way. Always pulled in different directions. So much tension. So much misunderstanding. Why can’t people just say what is on their mind? Why must everyone keep so much buried deep inside?

Nothing solved by silence. Sound cancels out in the center of the room. My heart has become silent because of you. No more pitter pat. No more heavy footsteps to be heard.

The young seek those with similar interest. Like the movies – music – sports – etcetera…
Not realizing there needs to be a deeper connection. A connection on a spiritual level.

I have come to rely on material things.
