I admit it damn it
I’m a pessimist okay?
I said it.
I don’t have much faith in humanity
I don’t have much faith in myself either
Negativity is like a moth to a flame
I keep it very close and dear to my heart
I don’t care about a lot,
I don’t care about a lot of people
empathy is a battle I struggle with
why should I walk a mile in your shoes
when you haven’t even attempted to undo the shoelaces of mine?
why should I feel your pain?
attempt to feel how you feel
when you turn a blind eye to my own suffering?
its a disease, just like procrastination and laziness
In this world you rather eat or be eaten
and I’m nobodies chew toy.
I’ve had a spark of optimism.
not an ever burning flame
pessimism isn’t disposable
or easily treated.
But I met you.
I’m well on my way.
