|Being the story of Jim,a boy who wakes up in a world where all are the same.|
"I look around,and I see the death of the human spirit" -Anon. He found himself in the middle of a large sidewalk in the park,dazed and confused,for he had never seen such a a place as this park. All the trees were of the same size and species,all the sidewalks were going straight,rather than curving around this strangely symmetrical park. The young man,named Jim,got up from his former resting place and started to walk around this new world. Jim looked up towards the skyscrapers with awe. Not with the awe of beauty,but of confusion. To him,the buildings all resembled refrigerator boxes with windows cut out of the sides. While staring blankly at these atrocities of architechural design,he accidentally ran into a billboard sign on the wall of one of those skyscrapers. Jim shook off the bump and noticed that the billboard held an ad for a new album by a popular rap artist. Jim thought little of it at first,but while walking through the city,he noticed all the billboards,magazines,flyers,and other advertisements all were ads for the same rap artist. Jim was creeped out by this revelation and ran. After running for some time,Jim found himself tired,and leaned aganist a wall to rest. He looked around and finally saw the people of this world. The men all had the same features:baggy pants,sports jerseys from a major fashion label,many faux diamond necklaces,and lingo that would make any English professor roll around in his grave. For the women,Jim saw them with tight pants with their thongs showing,baby-blue spaghetti-string shirts,,and so many rings that you wondered if their hands were mechanical. Their conversations were all the same,filled with "niggas" and "fags". They spoke of the new rapper Jim saw in the ads,and how he was "hot shit". Jim saw no variety,no diversity,no life in these sad children. No color. Jim ran away again,but tripped over some garbage cans. The residents all turned and stared,their eyes stabbing his soul. Jim screamed and fell. Jim woke up inside a room,the smell of perfume and cologne overpowered his nostrils and rose quickly from his sleep. He hoped to be in his own world,where he can be free to become his own person,but that was to no avail. The room was full of the same people from his dreams. The ads were all over the place,and the people were dressed exactly how the people in the other world were. The thought that he was still stuck in his dream instilled fear in him. Fear like he never felt. How was he supposed to escape? Bell rings. School's out. End Tweet
