(i have a secret to tell you)


the reality of the world today is

that there is no reality

what we perceive it to be

is judgement upon judgement

we don’t see “teenaged girl wearing shorts”

we see slut whore and much more

we elaborate and falsify to compensate

for what we don’t know

(and we don’t know anything)

we fill in the blanks with plastic hate

and we ignore the fact that maybe

just maybe

that dumbass-failure-annoying-little-bitch

could be a person with a heart

and a soul

just like us

(exactly like us)

(like you)
