Deviation Actions

To attempt flight knowing you may fall or to be forever earth-bound, following the crowd.

Depending on who you are and how you interpret it, it can be seen as either an act of conforming or breaking free from the crowd.

To conform is like killing a part of yourself. Your wishes, goals and personal ambitions, you have to forfeit them, never giving them a chance to see the light or grow into something more. It's represented by the blood dripping from the mouth. You try to hide it but it hurts you, kills you.

I'm at a point in my life when I'm stuck at a crossroad. Trying to pursue what I want while the people around me forfeit their dreams  for what is the 'norm', 'what everyone else is doing' and what is 'practical'.  Though I understand their point of view, I'd rather have tasted flight and fallen than spend my whole life staring up at the sky.
