I’ve felt and been stuck for awhile. I’m 25 years-old & I’ve never been content in my live. That’s not a bad thing to be honest. At the present moment I have the utmost clarity on what I want to do, who I am, who I want to be & most importantly, what I need to do to get there. Because I’ve been through so much in my life & I have friends & family caught up in the struggle I figured I’d dedicate this to everyone caught up in the rat race. If I could go back in time & give my younger self some advice, I’d leave this in my younger self’s backpack. It’s fine to be stuck because life happens but it’s never justifiable to choose to be stuck.

“Times like this I need a vacation

Haven’t enjoyed the summer in years because of self-deprication

Either too broke or too busy to refrain

Not relaxing is unhealthy so it’s a constant struggle in my brain

Depression has no place here as it’s a byproduct of fear

This generation kills its creativity with lean, pills, pen pricks & beer

Nature will ground you with electromagnetic re-calibration

All you really needed was positivity & relaxation

Empathy is your best friend now so love the inner child within

Don’t let the worlds’ expectations dictate where you fit in

The stagnation you feel is temporary so chill

Your value is priceless so always know you can afford to foot the bill

Getting restarted doesn’t take luck

The light shines in you to make people star struck

Find balance or at your greatest heights you will stumble

Even if your voice trembles, be confident & humble”
