There is something about empty space,
where there are no competitions.
The blankness is tempting,
tempting you to fill it at your own pace.
Occupy the void with anything you want,
that is all yours and none others.

Don’t be afraid to be alone and right.
Complete the blankness with personal desires, dreams,
and feels.
Speak your own message to a piece of paper, an empty sky, or a silent conversation.
Don’t repeat your peers’ thoughts;
be an individual.
I dare you.
