Why are you so restless? What do wish to achieve with your restlessness?
Answer me tonight. Your silence and pretence does more harm than good.
You keep twitching and shifting, and delaying the inevitable.
Why do pick up that old, oft-lost battle with time?
Why do want to lose again and rot in this same prison, when you can fly out if you try?
Why can’t you just be ordinary for the time being, and shun all the big roles you’ve self – assigned?
Why do you suffer so much, when there’s an easy way out?
Just blend in, be ordinary, do what they do. It won’t be long, I promise.
Soon, it will all be over and you, me and the little voices in the head shall all head for friendlier shores. Time will be good. The sun will be bright. Perhaps you’ll be happy at last. Perhaps.
Can’t you just pitch in for the time being?
Please. Listen. Just this one time, listen to me, before you let those voices take over and race away like a wild horse.
I know you are not meant for this. You are not commonplace. I know this is not your place. But I beg you to put up with this for one last time. Please don’t self destruct.
I know you’ve been wronged. I know they’ve told you to fit it – like a square peg in a round hole. And you have tried with all heart and soul.
Now you’ve grown tired and given up, and found greener pastures. But for the larger cause, you must return to the old ring for that one last match.
Trust me. You, me, and those voices – we can do it this time. Trust me, will you? Please.
