Amsterdam

glimpse: ROW | A partaking in society tightly outlined by conformity. A repetitive pattern. A falling in line. A look down that road reveals what’s in store down that line. A perpetual wait for tomorrow. The same box with the same facade with the same outlook. Rowing hard, day in, day out, wash, rinse, repeat. Unfortunately, caught in your own freedom, there is nobody to rebel against but yourself. And rebellion is lonely. And rebellion hurts. And the price is high and the prize uncertain. I heard the comfort zone is safe and snuggly.  I might just stay in. But tomorrow, yes tomorrow…
