The metamorphosis of the mind and soul occurs when one’s self-perception supersedes those of others. This is the seed of change, once planted in the intricate wiring of our design. It will evolve and bloom expanding, endlessly, to transform the soul like the expansion of the universe that altered space Progressive foresight comes when you see yourself beyond the lens society prescribed for you, when your scope of tangibility lies beyond the metrics at hand and in the possibilities unseen My odyssey is not just my own but one that is owned by countless silent voices, in a muted serenade harboring mind and soul. Epic in the nature of time, with each second nearer to the unravel of the folds shielding the core that is pure in form, but a marionette of life experiences narrated to tell a tale. This is our tale, one that is of strength and motivation to rise beyond the scope of a tainted lens.
