what do you do when your reserves are bone dry
and all the answers you’ve received aren’t helping?
what do you do when your best just isn’t good enough
and your hard work and effort haven’t produced anything?
how do you live when you’re caught between a deluge of pain
and the struggling knowledge that you need to be, you must be optimistic and hopeful?
how do you live
when all the energy you have left is going to survival?
“To share your weakness is to make yourself vulnerable; to make yourself vulnerable is to show your strength.”
– Criss Jami
“I think the job of the artist is to remind people of what they have chosen to forget.”
– Arthur Miller
“Effort doesn’t matter if love is left behind.”
These quotes intermingle in my mind. It’s like a story carved out of a maddening world, decimated until only a trio of strands were discovered among the rubble.
What does it say to you?
