One Step Further
I've been here before; the blank pages, meandering thoughts, slipping ideas, and familiar feeling that I will once again be swimming, not just treading water.
I'm somewhat absent, doing my best to grip at the resounding yes-you-can-do-this, rather than the tug of just-give-up-loneliness.
There's this voice, you see, and I haven't quite figured out how to use it. The feeling of detachment from the world that seems to be latched onto me right now, will stay until the rumble, the fire, and the undeniable quest for comfort and peace within my thoughts, muscles, bones, core, and in those around me (spreads arms further than ever before), figures out a way through.
Figures out how to not only say yes when speaking about something important, but also using that yes to take action, and in turn, encouraging others to do the same. Same with no, using it as a reason to speak out, with, alongside, or even on behalf of someone that might not be in a position to do so right now.
It's true, I have been here before, but this time instead of simply crossing my fingers and hoping that it all works out, I'm ready to grab hold and take this voice of mine one step further.
And I'd love it if you'd join me #morethanlyme 📷 @elliexplores
