January

Winter came late but that was fine by me, on those days it seemed like the world stood still and that was the first time I truly felt free. The ground crunched beneath my feet as I walked long distances on the toxin free streets. Waving to friends we'd never met is something I'll never forget. I was stranded in freedom for awhile and I couldn't help but smile because during these days there were no slaves and we weren't bound to anything except our fellow man. I wanted it to stay like that forever but eventually everything is severed. It left just as it came, so unexpectedly. Cast back to this meaningless journey full of hate and forced responsibility. Everyone was released into their familiar shackles. Once again, putting up their guard and raising their hackles. Walking as little as possible in polluted air, passing strangers, exchanging empty stares. Winter came late but that didn't change anything, on those days it seemed like the world stood still and that was the first time I wish I felt nothing.
