Day 344 – Disgusted


We live in a world where slavery is allowed and chosen by the slaves. We live in a world that doesn’t belong to us, that we didn’t even create for ouselves. We live in a world where betrayal is a common event. I live in this kind of world.

Whenever you reach out your hand, whenever you lift your head up and try to touch that ray of sunshine with your cheek, the world choppes off some of your fingers or give you a slap instead of a push. Disgusted. That’s the word for today. Disgusted by human beings, disgusted with the construction of society, disgusted with everything that stops us from being.

Today was a special day and as I unfolded at least three masks in order to survive this day, all I was left with was this horrible taste of betrayal and most of all lack of feelings and reactions. Today the world kicked my ass and I refused to react, so it just kept hiting over and over again until all that was left for me to do was just watch. Thank you for today life, or world, or karma, or whatever you want to call it. I had fun, but maybe you would want to go somewhere else next time. I’m not falling for it anymore. Good night!


About the author

Ela Vasilescu

I’m a writer based in Florence, Italy.

Human nature inspires me, different cultures, traditions, folk stories and the differences which make us unique. Documenting stories is a privilege, a glimpse into humanity, an unforgettable experience, one which I embrace and honour every day.

If you have a story twitching in the back of your pocket, one that is ready to be told, shared and heard, chances are I will be ready to listen; so don’t hesitate to send me an email.
