By Millicent Sykes
A petite sirah attempting to find meaning in a world celebrating hedonism, superficial beauty, and the quest for treasure.
Attempting to communicate the thoughts, emotions, and experiences which have haunted my essence, hoping to find commonality among others and a sense of understanding.
Concaving into myself attempting to find my own understanding so it can be shared, and recoiling from the world in an attempt to protect that which is so fragile, sensitive, and dear to me
Attempting to find the validation and reassurance from music, movies, and art while only receiving a fraction from fellow human beings
Deciding what to challenge, embrace, and internalize can be exhausting
When does this human existence become more smooth, aligned, and understood
Will it ever?
