There is a love lost in ourselves. A severance in our trust toward the unimaginable and the unknown. It came to us in the most desperate moments of denial and left our forms broken in the dust of our lives.


We have crept among this ocean of cynicism, of baneful arrogance that has shouted again and again " This is the way it is! " nurturing the collective world views of apathy and violence towards the self.


Our eyes have become closed to ourselves. Our feelings assumed too abstract, too alien, and too powerful to be understood and instead feared and repressed. This humanity in us...it has been so stifled by this warped, negative conceit everything we do must have a purpose that be evaluated and deemed worthy to exist.


We shunned the philosophical, calling it inapplicable. We turned away our feelings calling them irrational. We buried our expression as far down as we could, calling it uneconomical. What has been our reward for this? This endless cycle of isolation, of distrust? These long days of repressing our every want, our every desire and voice? The belief there is nothing for us, that we are all evil, irredeemable, worthless...?


Do not be so carried by the illusion. That need to believe you have removed the veil over your eyes, to truly see the world the way it is...has only placed a different veil over you instead....and it will weigh your head down into the ground. 


I am tired...so damn tired. I feel as old as the universe itself...but you will hear these words again. Many, many times... 


You are more than the sum of your use. You are more than a value on a piece of paper, or the topic of a discussion. You are human, you are your existence, you are everything waiting to be felt. This life needs more of you than less. Never forget that..dear god never forget that.

It's absurdly unreal how your writing goes along with the drawings. Absolutely loved it, as always.
