We live in a world where no one really cares
Tell me, friend, do you know what’s going on in the life of the guy next to you on the train, the lady who’s staring right at you, into space
A co-existence vested in shallow desires wants and needs and an aggression that masks your feelings of meaninglessness
If you fell off the face of the earth today how long would it take for your presence to be replaced – how long before the people you love, work with, whom you’ve yet to meet, move on
What forced purpose do you try to adopt in your life to justify the waste of resources and everything that is beautiful in this world to support you in your spiral into death
A spiral that begins the day you are born or perhaps even when you are first conceived; an inevitable truth, the one truth that supremes and trumps all else
A farce this is. A long arduous pointless descent into oblivion.
