I choose.. no news

There is so much negativity in the news

It rubs off on me, therefore I must choose

Ignorance over awareness now

In a hyperconnected world, I guess I can allow

Myself to sometimes hide under a rock

News of doom and gloom purposefully block..


Gone are the days when I felt I was required

To be well-versed in current affairs, with age I have acquired

The ability to not feel bad about being ignorant

Regarding a specific topic, I am more content

In not knowing what everyone else seems to know

Staying away from disturbing stimuli is more important, and so

Let the news channels flash the latest breaking news

While I stay ignorant, and uninfluenced by their biased views
