“Like a sleepwalker I am breaking through no matter what. Like a sleepwalker unable to stop and think, my actions will be valiant and my thought is unnecessary. I know what I have to do. I know what’s in it not only for me but for everyone else. Where am I going? I don’t know. I don’t care. There is no past or future, just the now. It is more abstract than I could ever imagine. I can feel the atmosphere pushing me in. It’s unstoppable, like a wave pulling me under. I can’t breath without it. I can’t see or hear what I don’t want. I need to leave now. I need to just do it. It is my destiny. Everything has led up to this. Nothing can stop me, not even myself. Is there such a thing as free will or has this been planned out like a cosmic recipe? It is what I have been waiting for in the back of my head ready to be awakened. It’s what I was sent here to do. Like a sleepwalker walking steady with my head held high. Like a sleepwalker walking blindly into the night.”
