Helplessness

Helplessness. That’s what there is to feel.
To Know there is a time bomb being planted right at your doorstep and there’s nothing you can do about it.
What more can you do?

To know a gang of thieves is being let in under the guise of friends yet we just stand there and accept them is almost unbearable.

To know a glimmer of hope could potentially be extinguished in a mere second is more than heartbreaking.

But then again, I guess this is the price to pay for knowing.
For being aware.
Sometimes ignorance is a cloak that protects us from our sad realities.
