Inner Sunset by Emily Flick

Identity is obscure. It is left when you are stripped down of all energies positive or negative. The raw spectrum of light shining through our embodiment of the soul. Sometimes shining brightly and occasionally darkness overcomes us. Darkness can overwhelm and swallow our identity. We sometimes feel the need to sneak into someone else’s identity while suffocated by this darkness. Either stealing, borrowing, learning, or editing what other people have to offer. Taking a swim into someone else’s subconscious is dangerous, and beautiful. When we do this we often forget to listen. Listen to yourself more. We tend to reach for help in the outside world when we need to nourish our inside world. We must cherish; The pleasure and the pain. Within ourselves. We have both of them, always dancing around within us. We need them to absorb and grow. They wake up every day and wait to see how we will let them dare to balance us. One can quickly smother the other. Constantly pulling back and forth wearing on the mind and body. We often worry so much about who we are, who we need to be, who others are. We lose the sense of self all together. Every day we live in a precious area between the sunrise and the deep glowing sunset that fades to dark. We are stagnant and flowing all at once, in-between. We tend to be afraid to let our inside world; outside. There are many choices we forget we have. I like to choose to watch every sunset. Even if I am not outside, I watch. I imagine, I feel in my heart what the colors may be. I identify them, hold them close, and let them go in the back of my mind. I believe each day has its own identity just like us. Rather the evening be gray and dark, almost as if the sun is gone forever. Or lustrous and marbled across the sky. In the end all that you can control is how you paint your inner sunset.
