As a wise band, the 1975, once said. WAKE WAKE WAKE UP It's Monday morning. No, you're not dreaming, you're still locked inside. I can't speak for everyone though. I see all these bathshit crazy people outside celebrating life. What the hell are they celebrating? I guess they don't care about the thousands of people who have died. The world's inner selfishness is starting to show. Over the last 3 months, I have only stepped foot into 3 stores. Besides that, I go out for my runs, I take pictures at the nearby park, and I stay put and safe inside my family's home. It's cool and all that people are wanting to share the love rather than live in fear, but by going out, they are going about it the wrong way. I can't stress this enough, these people just can't accept change. They can't sit back for one second and let this happen. If you just let it play out and stay put, you can save so many lives, and we can return to a new world as one. That sure as hell is not going to happen. I can dream about it, but it's not likely. I have been observing people. It's like they are headed to a mental breaking point. You know, I thought I would be one of them headed there. I'm not though. I wish I could just pass on some of my inner peace and share it with them. But, once again, that's wishful thinking. The amount of hatred that people have for one another, it's some scary shit. It is bad enough that the world is hurting. Climate change is insane, leadership is filled with stupidity, rona is just a worldwide murderer and the list of insanity goes on. When I look back at this time in my life, all of our lives, I don't know how I will feel. These are things that are going on around me and as a writer, I have to document it. Sometimes it just feels so wrong to even have these words float around my head because this is not something you want to imagine. We're standing in the middle of a disaster movie, but at least we're not the villain. Since I reinserted myself into the world, I was once locked out of, now locked out of again, along with everyone else - I was living by the motto, love over fear. Even behind closed doors, I still live by that specific motto. I'm not scared to return to the new world when that time comes, I'm just concerned that if the rest of society keeps headed down this road with their selfishness, we may not have a new world to live in with love over fear. It's the hard truth of it all. The world is so fucked up. You can't force people to change who refuse to try...
