I blast my favorite music and sing as loud as I want. There are other times when I will watch a movie or a funny YouTube video. If I’m not in the mood to do any of the things I just listed, I also talk to my parents or my older sister about what’s bothering me.
It begins with writer’s block. I feel as if I’m on a ship without any sails, just sitting there, stranded in the middle of the ocean. How did I even get here? I couldn’t even remember. But I know one thing for sure and it’s that I came out here for a purpose, only that I have yet to discover what that purpose is. Eventually an idea hits me of how I can move my ship by using what I have available on board, for instance making an oar from broken floorboards and some rope. Even though I feel as if my ship isn’t moving, I still continue to row. After many exhausting hours of rowing, I lay myself down to rest as I’m gently rocked to sleep by the waves crashing against the sides. As I close my eyes I hope that my dreams inspire me or at least give me the strength to create a better tomorrow by bringing me closer to my destination.
