sisters & brothers,
there is a constant tug of war going on inside us all. inaudible voices that scream when we’re alone & mumble when we’re not. they push us & pull us in every direction. they are judges in every decision. they are as relentless as they are invisible. some are saints with dreams of love. others are vile, lusting for blood. joy vs terror. light vs dimness. wonder vs dread. we are people with many sides.. many rivals within us.
i ended youth lagoon because it became a mental dungeon, & i was its captive. my intention was never to keep it going — only to serve as a nod to the blooming years. it’s been said the worst prisons are the ones we build for ourselves / the barriers, rules, & regulations that we choose to live by out of fear of the unknown or because we think it’s what we’re supposed to do. but i now feel freed. this project is the beginning of something new; not the continuation of something old.
every person alive is full of opposing forces. paradoxes. millions of thoughts swimming around while we fish for one to act on. we walk a fine line between calm & chaos, & often forget there’s only so much in our control. the rest is like wind; impossible to predict & futile to hold. it’s in this space that i have been spending time writing. i’ve been learning that love cannot exist without nightmares. peace cannot exist without pain. it’s in this space that i present to you..
