One day I slowly floated away.

*What if you slept? And what if, in your sleep you dreamed? And what if in your dream you went to heaven, and there you plucked a strange and beautiful flower? And what if, when you awoke, you had that flower in your hand? Ah, what then?*
*Things that happen. It's so... odd. Events, situations, comical points in life, and- of course- drama. That one little word that carries so much emotion: Drama. I know people, so many of them who cannot deal with drama. Things cannot have such an emotional drag and bearing on them. It slowly, but surely, kills their happy moods. Course, then again, doesn't it do that to us all?
Confusion... ahh, that brilliant little state of mind. It loves to toy with us all. It just adds on, and on, and on... to the point where you turn left while looking right, and turn right while looking left. You don't know if where you're going is where you're supposed to go, or be. And at this point, no one can help you. It's an internal war. A point where you're lost in the middle of the woods, and there's two paths on either side of you. Both of those paths are dark, cold, thorny... dangerous. But one of them leads you out, it leads you to happiness and a place where you don't need to be confused anymore. The only issue is that you do not know which path it is. You have no bread crumbs in this internal fight, you chose a path... and if it's wrong, you can't turn back. You have to live with that mistake, and try to find a way out... another path. Continue through the branches, the thorns, the pits... then take a turn, onto another path. And if it's the right one... you can fix your last stumble, and live on with this one.
Food for thought, is all.*

"Listen to the MUSTN'Ts, child,
Listen to the DON'Ts
Listen to the SHOULDN'Ts
Listen to the NEVER HAVEs
Then listen close to me--
Anything can happen, child,
ANYTHING can be."
--Shel Silverstein.
