It's all about our focus

And one day I suddenly thought, fearless
and without delay:
maybe it's just better this way.

It was the most horrible sentiment
I had ever thought.

I hit myself as hard as possible on my face
and fell, as I thought:
don't you ever think that again!?

I was lying on the ground, I could no more …
I thought: no,
I will never think that again.

Excellent composition with the "in-focus" frond in the lower left corner. Love the different colors, too - not just greens.
