bottom, once hit rock bottom
how much more can i go?
i challenge myself,
but isn’t rock bottom the lowest i can reach…
vertigo i say
i bet you that i can go lower than just rock bottom
there’s no limit,
feel high at its lowest,
the climax when all is resolved
but, what holds me back
when it has happened, will i have the strength to come back up again?
” Anyone whose goal is ‘something higher’ must expect someday to suffer vertigo. What is vertigo? Fear of falling? No, Vertigo is something other than fear of falling. It is the voice of the emptiness below us which tempts and lures us, it is the desire to fall, against which, terrified, we defend ourselves. ”
– Milan Kundera, The Unbearable Lightness of Being
