Nobody’s perfect. Most know this phrase. Few truly understand it.
“…….As I was passing through this human town I came across a rather interesting scenario. There were loud sounds coming from a sound magnifier, which though they did not interest me, seemed pleasant to listen to by the humans crowded there. Music, they called it. One of the most engrossing things I have ever encountered in my travels. That a simple systematic combination of different sounds can result in something so… unpredictable, and its ability to alter, in my experience, your entire thought process. A thing of extremes, and a diversity unmatched. I can’t describe it enough, really. You just have to experience it.
So in the middle, right in the middle of the crowd, was a lone female moving in such a coordinated fashion which i later understood to be their form of dancing.

~ Observations of an Imaginary Friend
So recently started my attachment/internship., and observation of events around the workplace got me thinking about institutionalization and the matrix, which inspired this piece.
Red pill or blue pill?
You are at the mid-point, in limbo.
One puts you back to sleep
One wakes you up
you see all the tools employed
All the illusions destroyed
And you realize your insanity
In a world whose sanity
Is banked on vanity
And your everyday life

You are a modern-day slave
Who would rather enjoy being chained
Than break the chains
And face the uncertainty
Of a free life
Understand this; vivid as it may appear, ITS NOT REAL.
Everything you see, no matter how vivid, is a perception.
Everything you hear, no matter how vivid, is an opinion.
so really, what is real?
Realise the difference between being the center of attraction and being the center of attention.
