We have learned to live with our hearts in our mouths, with permanent paranoia.
We learned to believe that something unfortunate can happen to us and we learned to spread that anguished perception so many times wrong.
Thus we learned to live. That’s how we learned to be. Locked up. Persecuted. Distrustful. Fearful. We learned to make others fearful.
We learned to be entangled. We put bars on doors, on windows, on walls.
