Lilac Wine :: a warzone towards haiku

There is a light that never goes out

Note to self: you will not be able to do it, not as you are. You will struggle and fail. The self you’ve cherished and kept safe will not be sufficient to the challenges ahead. You will be overcome with responsibility, and rise to meet it. The dreamer will not be the same once they’ve fought to their dream. It is cruel.

The price of realizing dreams is to haul them down from heaven, stop sensationalizing everything you want, and roll up your sleeves. You will be exhausted and without the onetime sense of mystery. And you will have won.

There will be another dream. And so on. Awe is not a territory, but a borderland between the known and the unknown.



  1. Brilliant writing you have wrought again. However, I find just one flaw in your logic, beautiful as it is. You see, you ~are~ known to me, yet I am still in awe.

  2. When you “haul the dream down from heaven” and can still be in awe, that is the moment you stop being an amateur. And professionalism has its own perks. The wonder never stops, it evolves, and a beautiful mind such as yours will evolve with it.
