Stressland stressland stressland stressland
Children memorising endless numbersland
Unpublished mental health statisticsland
No such thing exists as a poverty lineland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland
Laws and statutes lining the sidewalkland
Houses so tall they swallow in shadowland
Fall in and/or jump out of an airplaneland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland
Where the points don’t matter but actually they doland
Where there is no corruption but in our heartsland
Where everyone is happy until the cameras are offland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland
Working so you can replace a debt with anotherland
Dreaming at nights about the beauty of capitalismland
Churches and malls blending into a single godland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland
My cousins have lost their childhoods since sixland
Elites bleed into rain and permeate the earthland
Where people one doesn’t like are nothing but airland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland
Where we’ll sit in Terra’s oven for 50 years land
Where all the money doesn’t matter without loveland
Where nobody actually has the time to readland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland

Stressland stressland stressland stressland*

Freewriting Explanation: Every day, Valen shall use 5 minutes to write completely unprompted and uninterrupted, letting the words lead the way. There is no end purpose to each piece, but rather, the pieces are allowed to develop naturally in their own way. The pieces are then uploaded without edits.
