Maelstrom

When you are confronted by a maelstrom of thoughts bouncing around your mind. You just don’t know which way is up or which way is down, what is black, what is white.Just don’t know what to listen to and what thought(s) to ignore.

Oh the temptation is there, to go back to what was once was. Where familiarity could equal comfort.  That cheap temporary escape from perceived reality. That escape deep down you know will only last for a moment, if any. It’s like watching a movie or reading a book repeatedly over a period of time; the enjoyment is there. But going back after so long a time. the same effect is no longer there, just hollow memories of what was once was.

So why mess up? Why do it when after a gap it no longer has any meaning. It’s just the confusing and conflicting thoughts bouncing around in the mind  that tries to convince you to take that easy route to destruction.

But it is just a storm, and once it is over, it doesn’t matter how you made it through; or how you managed to survive, or whether the storm is truly over.

But be certain of one thing: when you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.

That’s what’s this storm is all about, so breathe and it will pass.

  1. I just finished re-reading your post Danny.
    Thanks for putting it into words so well…. and for posting here….
    I love how you always take what I am thinking and somehow translate it into an eloquence I can only wish to have. I saw this now when using some things. I wonder if it’d be like that with others. It’s good in a way, too. That what worked in the past doesn’t do the same. Just leaves an emptiness.
    Luv ya.
