»sometimes the day begins with nothing to look forward to

 and things go from bad to worse

 darkness overcomes you

 nobody understands

 the world is a deaf machine

 without sense or reason

 sometimes you wait but nothing ever happens

 then all your troubles come at once

 wonderful things are passing you by

 terrible fates are inevitable

 sometimes you just don’t know what you are supposed to do

or who you are meant to be

or where you are

 but suddenly there it is right in front of you bright and vivid quietly waiting

 just as you imagined it would be«
