In Lost, Submission on August 17, 2010 at 5:18 pm

My perception of “lost” is when a human being loses all perception of life and prioritizes something, a substance for example, that will ultimately and quickly lead to their mental deterioration and death. Unfortunately, once an individual “loses” themselves to something, they no longer have any idea of who they are or what was once important to them, instead, they live day by day chasing their addiction. The one and only thing in this world that we truly “own” is ourselves, our individuality as a human being is the one thing no one can take from us. Once that is sacrificed for something, an addiction, we become lost. Once we no longer own ourselves, what have we got left?
