Favorite Quote:
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
― Haruki Murakami

Everyone belongs to everyone.
The love.
Seen only as meat to men who stare with hungry eyes
I heard the ocean tell a story last night.
About the girl who captured Bernards heart
But had none of her own.
He tried to show her how to be....
A gramme is better than a damn.
He took her to the savage reservation
A gramme is better than a damn
They saw the young boy get whipped
A gramme is better than a damn
They met his mother
His mother
What smut.
A gramme
Is better
Than the experience.
Everyone belongs to everyone.
They left the reservation.
They all did.
They all died?
Not yet.
The father is
Struck down
The son is
Worshiped by the media
Lives in a sky top light house
Whips himself as punishment
The media
Loves him
But the empty society
Starts beating each other
So high on soma that sex is the thing on everyone's mind

The outsiders are banished.
The outsiders are okay
The outsiders are Bernard the son and their friend
Leninas just a part of society
The mother loved soma more than life.
A gramme is better than a damn
Everyone belongs to everyone
The outsiders are free to think.
The society is free to stay as one.
