It felt as if time has stopped. Everything around me seemed to be moving at twice the speed. And here I am frozen, unable to move or hear the things happening around me. I was told when I was younger, that I can change the world. Save it even. Like Superman without the ability to fly. Like a dog after a bone, I chased for greatness. Achieving excellence in everything I can possibly reach. But greatness came with a toll. Anxiety hit first. What began as determination became a mad sensation of never enough. WIth all the cameras flashing, they watched me fall, but they never stopped clicking did they. They watched me, squeezing every ounce of me to be published in their silly papers and magazines. I tried to come back. I tired too so hard to regain what I used to own. But they were younger and stronger, they had more time on their hands, more talent. They didn’t wait for me, they kept going beyond what I had achieved. Greatness once solid gold in my hands turned to water and slipped away. Greatness waits for no one, it kills the ones that lose it.
