The Struggles and Laments of the Common Lightbulb by Emily Berry

The Struggles and Laments of the Common Lightbulb is in the style of my writing where I use technology as a means to describe things that aren’t normally associated with it such as identity or freedom. As is the case of this spoken word. I believe we all feel trapped in routine occasionally and are forced to do the same thing over and over again, and particular with the virus, the feeling of entrapment is more prominent. So, I wrote this from the perspective of a lightbulb – that we might be feeling the exact same way and we don’t realise it.
