A very short piece on 'chronophobia', inspired by recent events such as the Sudanese massacre with a message at the end. (#BlueForSudan.) Thank you for reading. <3

Asphyxiate

C H R O N O P H O B I A is the fear of time.

The clock bodes a dusky demise,

The clock bodes a dusky demise, eliciting sand that spills;

We're too far away,

We're too far away, for guilt to asphyxiate.

For those of you who don't know, there is a crisis going on in Sudan. Protests by civilians have been met with backlash from the Sudanese paramilitary forces.

Now, the politics behind this is very complicated, and you would do better off by reading a news article about it. But the most disheartening thing is the victims. Peaceful protesters have been hurt and killed. Dozens of people have been raped during a sit-in attack, for example.

I know that we can't do anything directly to help this massacre, but I just want to share a message that I saw on Instagram. The most important thing we can do is to talk about it. Communications and the internet have been discontinued, so there is no idea of the true extent of damage.

I know I'm just a 16 year old girl who is far away from the conflict, but I like to think that we all have the ability and the compassion to not stay quiet on occasions like these. So talk about it. Spread awareness. Follow the news. Most of all, keep Sudan in your prayers and hearts.

Thank you. <3
