Written by Jacob Ibrag

We’re never really lost,

no matter how twisted of a path

we might’ve taken. Mistakes are myths

people tell themselves when the abstract

erases their footsteps. We must breathe

in the unknown air and embrace the lack

of clarity. It’s when control is ceased that

we ever get the chance to discover

who you were meant to be.

  4. I really, really like this. Our “twisted paths” are perhaps not so twisted after all. Life is such an adventure, you never know what’s beyond the next bend in the road.

  5. I love this. From someone who has taken a very twisted path, and embraced it at every turn, it is nice to hear somebody writing the things which I think as well.. although there are definitely moments when the opposite feels true- we are never lost, not really πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing.

  6. Dear Blogger, everytime i do a mistake, I just worry and fret about it all day long.

    ‘It’s when control is ceased that

    we ever get the chance to discover

    who you were meant to be’

    But yeah, i’ll try to put this read to good use and keep this in mind when i make a mistake next time.

  14. In this modernised world human being are more interested in controlling everything around him, which has occupied our entire mind. If we give away control and live effortlessly then nature will unfold in front of us and glide us towards our destiny. Loved your thoughts and flow of a poem.

  15. Making mistakes in life, that, is how we learn about ourselves, and so, we need to, make some mistakes, for us to turn wiser…

  20. Nice post. I think control is an illusion we maintain in order to feel safe and comfortable. But safe and comfortable is not the spur for creativity, or learning, or growth.

  24. Could you try to define the “abstract” you mention? I feel it is more symbolic than literal.

  26. I enjoyed this poem a lot. Our minds often want things to be logical and manageable but if we can relinquish the need for control a bit things naturally become more clear. My post today is about clarity in case you have time to have a look? Sam πŸ™‚
