The uncertainty and fear of the future.
The knowledge that the future holds a lot, but the fear that comes with it.
The realization of the magnitude of achievements in store,
but the attitude of laziness expressed towards the work at hand
and the thoughts of all these is the cause of the distant look in my eyes.
I stare, lost in a totally different world.
I look without seeing,
I listen without hearing.
The words fly over my head.
I bring myself back to the present before anyone notices.
