#1 – Anybodies and Nobodies


I’m living my life one day at a time. I’m taking each step carefully, each breath cautiously. I’m overthinking before everything I might say or do. I’m trying to extend beyond today and peek into the distant misty future. I’m trying to make sure I don’t shatter this fabric of glass, woven so delicately and perfectly. They say we should make the most out of today, but I am yet to let go of yesterday. How I long for those memories to become realities again. I’m standing in a sea of souls but yet to find someone like you. Maybe I am drowning in the affairs of this mundane life, to become one day a somebody in the vastness of anybodies and nobodies.
