Let Me Hold Your Attention
It's risky behavior that draws the most eyes.
👀 You see it? You’ve seen that. Remember?
Where they’re leaning over the highest cliff in the craziest angle.
The first wedding picture captured by the moment.
The heart palpitates to the thought of it.
To feel the rush, the adrenaline, the desire to one day to do the same.
We read stories of bravery everyday, just in a way that's under disguise.
The stories told online are masks worn to hide.
Boldness is the norm.
It's a badge of endurance to combat the times.
We all see what individuals and groups of people are willing to do for our attention.
But we crave reality, a break from the feeds fed to us on a digital platter.
The side effect of a drug is always the killer.
We have to continue questioning. Continue fighting through ideas.
But how can I not want to break it all on my way out?
What is life when we're not all in?
It feels like an ice pit in a cold tundra breaking away from the digital world. You’re plunged back in a simpler reality.
Your immediate surroundings, and more profoundly those that impact your life on a daily.
I can't pretend like I haven't had nihilistic thoughts about our over consumerized world.
That the touch of another humans skin is foreign to us.
And a flat interface gives us a flat reflection. But we crave it.
At whatever cost.
Alone in the wilderness the people still crave for connection.
Many have died to lead us from our even deeper backwaters of the past.
But as the people are lost in what the world could be.
They don't realize they could be the ones who are destined to change it all.
The greatest master of your life are the things that hold your attention.
Who’s holding yours?
