  • ...with your Back faced towards the Sun.

    You ever felt like you were forgotten? Like you are stuck in a crack. Nothing you seem to do is making anything better. The crack continues to break in deeper with every movement you make. Stuck in a situation where you are not sure if you should act, because every action you have seem to make the situation worse. You realized that there was a time where you looked up towards the sun, and tried to come up with ways to get yourself out of this dump. But you’ve reached the point where the sun seems too far away… lost, and unmotivated.

    So you turn your back towards the sun and just hold your breath and stay still. The sun continues to shine while you continue to face the darkness. You find time passing slower, while you sit and contemplate, finding the courage to be able to turn and face the sun. Climb your way out while your whole world seems to be collapsing on top of you. Courage. Until then I’ll be stuck in the cracks with my back turned towards the sun.
