That EVEN when we have been war torn and ravaged...
Even when we are SO EXHAUSTED from toiling and schlepping and
 being RESPONSIBLE for EVERYONE
that we LITERALLY cannot take another step…
Even in the most extreme cases of abuse, neglect, etc...
We, en masse
tend to be somewhat ROBOTIC...
in that EVEN the most HEINOUS of situations STILL becomes the accepted ROUTINE...
So that...
when we are FREED from our version of BONDAGE...
when the threat of TERROR has been ERADICTED...
there is a small, vacuous space somewhere inside of our hearts...
that LONGs for the horrendous routine to still be in place...
STRANGE beings we are...
Take the prisoner out of prison
and 9 times out of 10 he will willfully commit a CRIME in order to SIMPLY return to his routine...
We continue, unbeknownst to even ourselves...
to create situations from which we can CONTINUE TO SURVIVE...
just observing...
