New Direction.

Numbness is like floating on water with your face towards a vast sky . You can see everything moving above you while having no control over it .You don’t say anything or try to change it. You can hear the cheering noises all around you in a blur because your ears are under water but you don’t participate. You just keep going with the water’s flow as it moves you into different directions and you’re okay with not going anywhere.
But somehow there’s always that moment when your foot slips down and your body jolts into awareness. You notice that you’re going somewhere you don’t belong so you kick harder. At that particular moment of total chaos it may feel like you’re sinking but you’re actually adjusting to a new direction.

  1. The metaphor behind this prose is so true.

    Things may seem chaotic but we’re trying to adjust to this new comfort, new direction, & new everything.

    I love this so much. It’s always scary going in a direction where we have no idea what is waiting for us when we reach our destination, yet there is something comforting about knowing we are moving somewhere that may potentially get us closer to where we want to be.
