Fading Faces

In life there are those people who once shone brightly like stars in the sky, and like stars in the sky they eventually fade away, becoming nothing more than a faceless presence of a time long past.

What causes us to fade away? To let that flame die out to mere smouldering embers and give up? Who really knows, or even cares anymore.

When you look in to the endless mass of people walking towards you, you can see it in their eyes, that dull look as if the world itself has just weighed them down and then you see others with smiles so bright because they hide a world of anguish behind them.

As life goes on more faces fade and as you pass them you can’t help but stop, even if only for a brief second and think “do I know them?”.

When we reach a time in our life’s where it all seems too much that is when we have to choose, to let our flames become smothered and die as to be free of the struggle and just accept the life that has been forced upon us, or we can face the ferocious tidal wave that eclipses the sun head on and burn harder than ever before splitting that once monstrous wall of nothing in two and emerge stronger than we ever thought possible.

People will try and stop you because they cannot bare to see someone succeed where they failed. Keep pushing and never look back and remember this… some can do it alone, some cannot, never be afraid to make your choice and never be afraid to ask for help to push back that which is charging at you. 

Don’t become one of the fading faces of the world, become who you are and more.
