The quote “These mountains you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb.” Najwa Zebian
What is the underlying theme? What’s the story here? The overarching emotions? If you like you can read them like panels in a comic strip it’s up to you how your interpret them. Literal or abstract are both perfectly acceptable.
It is time
There is a hidden desire in her heart that wants to see the light of the day. She has gone through her life, hiding all that is important to her for she thinks that no one is willing to see her point of view. Or that she is even allowed to have a point of view. She is a woman after all, living in a society where women are only expected to do what they are told, when they are told and have to be subservient to the men in her family.
But something has changed inside of her now. Like a chrysalis, she is ready to emerge from her cocoon and spread her wings. She wants to break the shackles and reach for the rainbow. Maybe this new courage has awaken in her because of broadening of her mind by the books she has read. Now she is ready to lay down the burden of expectations and reach the zenith of her ambitions.
It is time.
