An abyss of nothingness--
Comfort from the pain of the world.
Yet fear of an all too final success keeps
holding me back from another attempt.
I don't want to think or feel or hurt or try to live up to the expectations of those trying to mold my life into something they call normal.
Why should normal mean anything more than doing what I feel is right for me or being what I want to be?
Without that freedom, all that lies ahead is the abyss of nothingness.
