Hard to grasp

by Phoenix ¥   Mar 13, 2019


This is all the life I have the energy for
Oh yes - of course I want more!

But I have to accept my body limits me
I have no choice, I must let it be.

Dreams are dreams that stay far away
Something meant for another day.

Or another lifetime perhaps?
It’s just so painful and too hard to grasp.

    A very reflective piece that doesn't go into too much detail but it something I feel we can all relate or ache for. Whether it's physical limitations or struggling with emotions or mental energy... we can only do what we can do. There comes a point of acceptance with that along with a constant sense of wonder, what more can we do and achieve?

    It can be frustrating to realise that all our hopes and dreams will never actually be reality. I suppose we just have to make do with what we have and keep striving for what we can attain.

    Take care and all the best,
    Ben
