(poems go here) The Human Condition
IM TIRED OF THE HUMAN CONDITION
COCKY, PRIDEFUL, SELFISH, SELF-CENTERED PEOPLE
“YES, BUT WHAT ABOUT ME?”, “HOW DOES YOUR LIFE SATISFY MINE?”
THE HUMAN CONDITION IS ARROGANT
ARROGANCE IS WHAT KILLS THE BEST OF US
THE INTELLIGIBLE ARE CRIPPLED INTO A STATE
OF TOTAL POPULARITY LUST, THE MOST COMPASSIONATE
AT HEART ARE KIDNAPPED BY THE CARTELS OF LIFE, IN WHICH THEY
ARE BEATEN INTO SELF-CENTEREDNESS AND THE DIRT WALLS
ARE ONLY GETTING HIGHER, THE WALLS OF THE HUMAN CONDITION.
OVER AND OVER AND OVER AND OVER THE CHILD THAT HOLDS THE KEY
TO THE DOOR AMIDST THE FLOODING ROOM IS SUBMERGED BY ITS
OWN AND WITH THEIR INSECURITIES THEY PUSH HIS SHOULDERS DOWN.
THEY STRUT LIKE PROUD BIRDS THROUGH DENSE PUBLIC WAYS LIKE JUNGLES AND PLAY
PRETEND THEY PRETEND THAT THEY MAKE A DIFFERENCE; THEY FOOL THEMSELVES INTO THINKING THAT IT’S GOOD. THEY PRETEND THE ART OF PROTECTING AND PRESERVING THE STATUS QUO WITH FAKE SMILES SICKLY ENDEARING HUGS AMONGST MEMBERS AND CAREFULLY PLANNED ORATIONS AND DIALOGUES ARE THOUGHTFUL NOT RUTHLESS, SPITEFUL AND WICKED RETURN TO YOURSELVES WHO YOU WERE WITHOUT THEM BACK, WAY BACK BEFORE DRAMA AND RUMORS BEFORE FRIENDS MEANT ANYTHING TO YOU.
THAT IS WHO YOU WERE AND ARE AND IRONICALLY WHO YOU SHOULD STRIVE TO BECOME
AS A CHILD INNOCENT AND PLAYFUL. BLUNT AND CAREFREE
ISN’T THAT WHO YOU WANT TO BE
UNAWARE, UNCARING OF PEOPLE’S ATTITUDES, FEELINGS OF YOU
RETURN
HIT RETURN
BECAUSE IF WE ALL RETURN THERE WOULD NOT BE SPITEFUL HUMAN BEINGS, RUTHLESS UNDERAGED PERPETRATORS, POWER-HUNGRY JUVENILE DICTATORS, MINI HITLERS ON OLD ELASTIC LEASHES, MEAN GIRLS, PREPPIES, GOTHS, EMOS, THE CHEERLEADERS, THE POPULARS, THE QUIET GIRL, THE MISUNDERSTOOD, THE NERDS WITHOUT THESE PRECARIOUS TRADITIONS OF LABELING AND GROUPING AND STICKY-NOTING, POSTING, HASH TAGGING, ACID SPITTING, FAÇADE WEARING, INSECURITY SURGING, REPUTATION WRECKING, ATTENTION GRABBING, DESPERATE, MANIPULATING PEOPLE, WHERE WOULD WE BE?
WE WOULD BE WITHOUT THESE IDEOLOGIES, THESE PEOPLE, THESE LIES
WE WOULD BE IMMUNED TO, OVERCOMING, UNDERSTATING, REVILING, CURING, STRIPPING AND BLEACHING THE HUMAN CONDITION INTO TOTAL SURRENDER
WHAT WOULD IT TAKE TO DO THIS
WHAT WILL YOU LOSE IN THE PROCESS
YOU WILL LOSE
PAIN, GUILT, INSECURITY, SELF-ABHORRENCE, SELF-DEPRIVATION, ENEMIES, TYRANTS, COLDBLOODED DICTATORS, INSTIGATORS, CRIMINALS, MURDERERS, PSYCHOS, CONFUSION, DEPRESSION, WAR…
WHO WOULD TAKE THIS UNMERCIFUL BURDEN UPON THEIR BACK, AND BE ABLE TO WITHSTAND THE INJURIOUS TORTURE THAT IS INEVITABLE TO ENSUE…
WHO WOULD WILLINGLY TAKE THIS FROM ALL THE PEOPLE IN THE WORLD EVERY BOY AND GIRL, WOMAN AND MAN AND EVERYONE IN BETWEEN
LOOK AT WHAT WE’VE DONE TO DESERVE THE HUMAN CONDITION, WE’VE DONE EVERYTHING…
ASK YOURSELF, WHO HAS ENDURED THIS, WHAT BEING IS OMNISCIENT AND OMNIPOTENT AND HAS BEEN HERE SINCE THE BEGINNING
WHO HAS COME DOWN AND LIVED WHAT WE LIVED AND MORE
WHO HAS RESCUED US INSTEAD OF GIVE US A LIST OF THINGS TO DO AFTER THEIR PERSONAL EXPIATION TO THEIR NIRVANA…
YOU KNOW THE ANSWER, WHO CAN RENDER THE HUMAN CONDITION POWERLESS, SPEECHLESS…
