Freedom

What do we want
to be free of?
Is it just to be free?
To love.
Not to take the things
granted to us
for granted.
To breathe.
To live.
To bury the dead.
To bear what we carry.

Journal entry (16/08/17)

Time moves more slowly these days. I feel I am not running after my life anymore. I can rest. I can enjoy the light of the day more.

Today, I walked in the park, at one point, alone. Alone, time moves faster. As if it were a companion. As if we were talking and the day was listening. And the trees were there in the silence of the present.
