Written by Jacob Ibrag

‘Cradle your words and put them to

sleep, garnish your thoughts and render them

obsolete.’ You’ll want to give in, to desensitize from

the system. It feels rigged, as if no matter how much you

try, you won’t create a ripple. They’ll offer escape, a path

towards a guilt free conscience. Tempted by the taste

of ignorance laced bliss, you quickly throw up

the lie before it permanently spreads.

To be alive is to be awake.

  4. So cool. It’s like my heart just understands this, but my mind wanders around in circles playing with it. Which I guess is the whole point?
