I am a writer. I am inspired by everything around me, the little moments that no one notices and the grand gestures that the whole world sees. I am inspired by words, thoughts, sounds and images. Sometimes it’s a line that turns into something massive. Sometimes it’s just a passing quote that eats at me until I can release it into the world.
I’ve seen this picture countless times, yet when I saw it last week it spoke to me. I wrote the words below to go with it, from Levi’s point of view. These words are a mix of all the guys in the business and the internal struggle that they most likely face.
Thank you RJ Sebastian for capturing this moment. I can only hope that my words do justice to your image.
I am him, and he is me. Yet we are still two different people. Our edges are blurry, where the glass meets reality and we start to blend together and separate at the same time. We balance each other out and pull each other apart. It’s an internal and external struggle I deal with on a daily basis. Some days I wish it wasn’t this way, other days I wouldn’t change a thing. I want to be him and he wants to be me. We both want to be loved. I look at him and all the guilt in my life floods my mind. He looks at me and sees all the regret. But when we stand together we are stronger than we ever imagined, ready to take on the world and everything that comes with it.
