Headspace

Headspace

Neither here…neither there… Lukewarm…apathetic..indifferent… Zombified…in a trance…numb… This is my headspace… Tears in my eyes…sorrow shows on my face…heavy is the heart Loved my solitude…but now I fear it…afraid of my own thoughts… On the outside I’m strong…on the inside I’m weak……

Walls

Walls

We have perfect thoughts for a perfect world…. But then reality hits us in the face when we head out to the world… Rejection…disappointment…heartache…pain…becoming a regular occurance… Driving us insane… We build walls… We build walls because we want to be in…

Other guys would push serious weights on the morning of a game, the fatigue showing later that afternoon.
