Rational is my least favourite word in the English language
it destroys poetry
it destroys heart
.
Indoctrination discourages us from thinking creatively,
prompting instead pre-prepared answers,
constraining our possible futures,
limiting our heartfelt responses.

As we disentangle ourselves from the indoctrinated,
from rationality, obedience and conformity,
we must often maintain our silence,
proceed with compassion 
remove ourselves from reason
by way of the reasonable.
