The 54th Deadline: Flight


The 54th Deadline: Regardless of failure or success, you learn. Life grants people so many chances to get it right.


“Our bloom is gone. We are the fruit thereof.” – Wallace Stevens

I need to take off already and begin this flight. So much of life for me is just waiting and waiting. When will that perfect moment come? Why can’t I just get there already?

What am I going for? What should I be looking at? To go aimlessly around would do me no good. I need a destination. I need a tangible goal.

What is it? Where is it? How do I get there?

So many questions. Not enough answers.

Unclear about the Future

The more I think about where I need to go, the more nervous I get. I have no clue at times. Or at least, I think don’t have a clue. My gut tells me otherwise. There is so much I need to know before I make such a drastic attempt at fixing it all.

What can I do?

This flight… It is so scary! And yet, I have to get through it. I must. Life isn’t going to wait for me. I am not going to wait for life back, either.

Take off. Get to where I need to go. Only then can I reach new heights!

There will be obstacles. There will be people to stop me. There will be a constant feeling despair and hopelessness. Doesn’t matter. Keep going. Keep trying.

Whatever it may be, I need to do it. Eventually. This will all make sense. But I know this will not be such a straightforward journey. Signs of the past definitely confirm this.

Oh, well.

This is one flight I will gladly take.
