It's getting harder to relate to where I'm from
I float back and forth between optimistic
and terriefied
for the first time in my life, I feel a very real fear for the future of everything 
together, we are ruining what made us beautiful
measuring ourselves by how many strangers think we're interesting and likable is still the most popular thing to do
we have access to everything, but it's
easier than ever to
ignore what's true
we focus our attention on distractions,
which don't keep us
up at night
but true change is never easy or quick and
thinking longterm is rarely popular
100 years from now
we'd like to not be known as the ones who fucked it all up
I'm not saying this
to upset you,
I don't have the answers
at the end of the day we all want to be loved and to feel free
but a new dimension of technological progress and societal change is
already in its infancy
