Chained up to the wall, forced to stand up, nothing to look at but a dirty-ass wall. Your arms raised up-eventually they would feel tired and numb. No one to talk to, until you go crazy I don’t know if I can endure that more than 5 minutes, even days

    He’s looking like “yo, I’m right here. Admiring my now dead body. I haven’t crossed the other side yet.”

  1. Just imagine those people as your neighbors. You’re just being neighborly and welcoming them with smiles 🙂😃
