This beautiful poem really captures the state in which I am in. Life as an artist can be as fulfilling as it is frustrating. Luckily, I love what I do and will stop at nothing to fulfill my dreams but It’s days like this where I have too much time to be in my head. I get caught up in sadness and anxiety. But I know all these “sleepless nights” will result in something beautiful. It will never be my childhood fantasy of happiness but it will be beautiful and I will be thankful for all I gave up to get there.
thank you melrose poetry for listening to me & writing this.
