unpleasant encounters

there is a bug on my window,
I've never seen one like this,
it is disgusting,
as I get closer to study it
behind the safety of the screen,
I become even more repulsed by it
making sure to let it know how I feel,
here I am talking to a bug on my window
ridiculing it for being unpleasant to look at,
poor guy was just probably moving along
not looking to harm anyone,
though you can never tell with insects,
it could have had murderous intentions,
I stare at it making a face,
the face feels familiar,
I can't see it but I know it,
the same face these bastards
give me as I walk down the street,
this is how they see me,
thinking all the same thoughts,
feeling the same disgust,
I'm the bug infesting their world!
they would squish me if they could!
I look back toward the window
and it was gone, bound to cross paths
with another who will most likely
kill it instead of speaking to it

ordinary

daydreaming,
thinking about
my place in the world,
I wonder if I have one
or if it is just so miniscule
it's over-looked,
can't tell if it's
ego or passion that
drives me to do things
but I do them anyhow

sun says farewell as I
sit here writing this,
the room becomes a
reflection of  myself
as I can't help but to
come to conclusions,
I'm a man lacking
any real talent,
thirty years gone,
plateau'd at mediocrity,
growth stunted with
no one to blame

see no evil, hear no evil, and certainly speak no evil

disagree,
the talk turns hateful,
insult all other thinking,
protect box at all costs

ATTACK! ATTACK!
 if the wall falls
all hope is lost!
keep back! I reject you!
my life isn't a lie!
all that was done cannot
be undone- cannot be wrong!

be ready for dismissal in:

3...2...1...

rebooting....
........
....
..
beep

all systems back online

keep working, keep driving,
keep buying, keep breeding,
keep dying, keep killing,
keep snitching, keep paving,
keep chopping, keep building,
keep ignoring, keep slaving,
don't slow production,
don't change for anything,
keep trying to fix that
which cannot be fixed

don't you see?!
it was made to be broken!
that is the trick,
bred to believe
insanity is normal,
worship killers as heroes
judge liberators as evil,
all is okay if it is
according to plan,
genocide is fine
but the murder of one
is too much to bear,
a sickness is spreading
an epidemic of sorts,
stockholm syndrome,
everyone seems
to have it these days

some people just cant take hearing
what might actually be out there,
the world not being round
but in the shape of a square,
pulling the veil from their eyes
causes disdain and hatred,
run back to yer rabbit holes,
you'll be safe there

understanding people

you can judge,
I encourage it,
basic human instinct
relentlessly attacked,
I say more power to you,
but if you're going to openly
make a judgment on someone
you better fucking learn
how to properly go about it

people are not that hard to figure out,
they follow a narrative, a character,
shopping for their personalities,
adhering to the genre they chose
wearing their personalities for all to see
with absolutely nothing underneath
taking a dive in the kiddie pool
drowning in it, categorizing themselves,
the need to assimilate with
no depth, no thought outside the parameter,
honestly, they make it easy

first and foremost,
the most important,
if making an assessment
on a personality,
you should start with your own,
be honest with yourself,
you can't see through someone else
while your mind whispers lies,
learn who you are,
accept it no matter
how ugly it may be,
maybe then can you see
someone's "true self"

and finally understand a story
