Curtain 2

Sometimes we turn to ourselves, we walk into our mind's darkest closets and we find nothing but endless silence. We stare at that darkness and constantly seek an escape from our self-made darkness. We carve imaginary idols so they become a reason to escape from our fears, doubts and faults. As if this is how we can breathe easy and under this pretext we sit alone in regret, waiting for the light that we desire, unaware that all of these are our own creation. All the fears, idols, expectations and our loneliness. And this is how we deprive ourselves of the ability to stand and cross the border of light and shadow.
