"Nothingness" | Lawrence Kwakye
How can I be human?
I am a traveller escaping reality settings
A true escape artist emanated from the darkness
Longing to discover new roads
Navigated by dimensions not yet seen
It is Between open borders and Isolation
where I become aware of my existence
The In-Between world is my home
Moving and staying
Staying and moving
Reconstructing the reality I find myself in
Locked in dependency
Trying to break out
A new skin for the soul to wear
True the eyes of others I see myself
Imagining the future
My sight made out of choices
I haven’t been there before
That is where the magic happens.
