It’s so sad to see, the magic that is lost, when beings or even bands choose another way. Look at Coldplay, for example, what in the world actually happened? They are “keeping up with the times”, which is obviously okay, but personally, I fail to hear the soul through lyrics or instruments that they once were so in full bloom of. Man, X and Y. Parachutes. A Rush Of Blood To The Head. They transcend time for me, they truly make me wonder with awe, the amazing mysteries that have yet to be discovered, make me feel so much and somehow, they are who they are today.
We do change man, we change a lot.
So much so that some of our past selves are so unrecognisable that they end up being perceived as this once upon a distant land that existed strangely, and somehow, here we are, through it all,
Where you are, says a lot. About the places you’ve been to, and the places you go, and of course, the place where you’re currently at.
More than anything, for me, it portrays the morality within the choices that you have made, for are you truly happy to be here? If not here, then where?
If not now then when? When, where, how were you, you?
Was it 3 weeks ago, when you woke up and suddenly the world seemed okay, even if it was for just a fraction of a second,
Will it be 4 months into the future, when you finally make that trip you have been planning?
All these small, petty disregards,
All the past and future dissonant hearts,
Here you are, and you will change,
No absolute doubt,
You will evolve or diminish so hard that earthquakes will come alive,
And you will find the fluidity of this transience that we call existing,
The calmness and the chaos that we sometimes call spiritual heavy lifting.
