change within can only begin once you realize you can struggle no more

words & photo by Brian Thompson.

"a certain darkness is needed to see the stars."

change within
can only begin once you realize
you can struggle no more.

it can only come
once you’re able to say,
“enough is enough”.

this isn't failure;
this is enlightened awareness.

this is graceful acceptance
in finally being willing to transform.

this is a transformational moment
when you pivot and steer the timeline of your future
into the direction of your choosing,
no longer allowing any other thing to control your fate.

once you recognize the source of your suffering,
and all that it’s done to twist your perception of reality,
let down your guard and resist it no more.

embrace the clarity of your insight,
let your newfound wisdom be the light
that shatters your shadows within.

let your self-awareness
embolden your actions with renewed intent,
and let it empower your strength of will
as you tread down new paths of transcendent change.
