I have no idea what I'm on right now...

There are days

There comes a day within everyone’s life, when you give yourself a specific time to think. There are days when you are confused, and so overwhelmed by everything, all you want to do is sit and stare at something that takes it away. A photo maybe, or something fictional; anything that can help you focus on one thing rather than everything.
There comes a day when you realise the world is not something to be gazed upon without caution; when you realise the world is what you make of it. For maybe a minor second, you must see things as they are; not what they were, and not what they could be. When your eyes open.
Seeing can be metaphorical. It can also be physical. It depends how you see it. Do you view things physically? Or do you ask yourself questions, where did this come from, why did it happen? Do you view people as people, or ideas that are simply drifting, only existing with your interaction? Do your dreams lie amongst the stars? Or are they simply with that person in your class, the one who sits at the back reading that magazine you love?
There are days when everything can be too much. There are days when everything is far too little. There are days when we question our very existence and purpose.
And there are days when one must simply be grateful, and live.
