Written by S.D. Clifford
Living in a tiny room that is a self-created world of isolation, negative voices and self-recriminations, it seems the modern world, AI and Social media is suffocating Terry into a hole he cannot seem to escape from. As a child he entered the world with a feeling that he does not quite belong. As an Adult heading into the latter part of his life, he finds modern life with all its complexities near impossible, especially the voices that keep reminding him that he has already been sentenced to death.
Battling with a constant feeling of hopelessness and intense depression, Terry has to tap deep into his heart and the Love of the things he Loves if he is to overcome his personal demons and quench those voices that want him dead. Are the voices real? Can he find a lighter space where he can live and love, or does he decide there is no place for him and his kind in the complex matrix that is everyday reality?
Has it gone too DARKK to come back, or will love and the will to fight for his own existence pull him through?
