I sit alone in the room
blinded by the light
mortified, dead yet alive
I do not hear or see
feel nor fear
I just sit, staring
killing myself slowly
as the images on the screen pass by
I do not eat or drink
I just remain seated
The ruin is obviously all around
But I do not care
No, I rather do not long to care
And why should I?
Someone else will solve the problem
The government will save the world
While I do nothing
Except sitting
And staring
My neighbour is dying
That should make for a good Facebook post
But I won't help
Why should I?
I'm fine, so there is no problem
Oh, look
Another 18 children dead
Such a shame isn't it?
Then again, it's probably their
Fault. I won't change, I just
Sit
Stare
Die…
Brainwashed.
there is so much suffering in the world, so much pain, yet at times when others need us the most, we turn a blind eye. this is the start of the ultimate brainwashing, separating everyone.

it's a real shame. people would much rather sit in front of the tv discussing about the injustice in this then to go out do something about it. i have facebook, and i have a television, but i don't let it ruin my life. i can still think for my own.

yea, during english, we were talking about orwell and orwellian governments. during class, i just started writing and this is what came to be. but if you think about it, people are getting brainwashed, getting dulled by constant television, facebooking and stuff like that. that's why most of my work is first on paper, and still with a pen and ink.
