Lesser Moments

Prompt: Nightmare

Nightmare

Here’s my nightmare: Awakening to a world that is frozen in time, any time. There is no idea of progress or improvement, and instead a driving belief that we must preserve even the things that are flawed and damaging. There are blinkered fantasies about how life used to be, and an idea that the present is a lesser moment than the imagined past.

There is no empathy, just an attitude that suffering is normal and acceptable and inevitable in some way, for anyone but ourselves.

My nightmare.
