"Creation" - PEIXE, João (2019) - Piece nº8
I have no idea what I'm doing with my life. I just think I know what I want or what makes me happy. I spend days postponing and later hating having let them pass. I feel lost and alone. Lost in wanting to let go of the days I hate and not knowing how to do it. Alone for wanting to escape normalization and increasingly afraid to embrace my true self.
How many times has my head told me that my strength is but an illusion? That this strength is based on the comfort and safety that others give me? A warm pillow that strokes my face and allows me to be so critical of everything and everyone and where, in turn, I include myself.
Too much thinking wears my mind, erodes my time, squeezes my heart… Not even the discipline you have given me can fill all the gaps.
Perhaps looking back, I can see what I need to move on.
I need the right spice for the soul. Not more, not less. But I have to go it alone. Yes, that would do me good. I hope I won't forget that tomorrow when I wake up.
Ah! My God! How confusing, exciting and unexpected is Creation.
