BARE WIRE
So... do you exist?
No offense, but there is some question. Is it a matter of taking up space -- or is it something more? And if you do exist, are you worth the space you take up?

If you have been protected thusfar, dare to take off your clothes. And if you have become numb and complacent, then dare to take off your skin. Either way, go below. You can be bare, unsheathed. Do not be afraid. You can think; you can feel. Wherever you stand, infinity gets both bigger and smaller; so try going inside -- instead of outside -- for a change.

This time, walk away from the light; when your eyes adjust, you will not believe what there is to see. You can think; you can feel. Blur the line between what is prudent and what is dangerous, between what is healthy and what is insane, between what it seems like to you and what it really is. Who is truly qualified to draw that line? Who has the right to judge?

Go underneath. Question your perception, your sobriety. Think. Feel. When and why did you ever stop? Or is it that you never began?

So, do you exist? It is for you to know, for you to decide. Better get going; it may already be too late...
