Serving as a moral defense, a designated presence of mind impresses with a gentle invitation. A movement, a gesture, stands more as a purpose for the neglected. It’s not a worthless scenery, but a necessary thievery of collective notions about being part of something gradually harder to control. The human nature is a burden in their attempt of forced transcendence, but a soothing word stands as a retribution to a still compelled conscience. Blinded by their parental duty they find themselves confused with the fakest sense of responsibility. Help is just a lie from their staring leader, whose implication counts as more than if it was considered a calculated, over-tested solution wrapped in the truth. The infallible equation stands to fall as the time they bought has expired and the invention of entities is beyond their capabilities. Time serves none – seeking through written virtues they discover no icon of deliverance, yet they have to bear the burden of witnessing the very downfall of their frail system. The spark of life is consumed before they learn their lesson. The morning sun artificially opens eyes to show there’s no control.
