Thoughts from the Dark side
I see your point Common Sense; I really do, but... I paid for this product.... so how expired can it really be?
What if the date on the box is just a suggestion? Or what if we've been lied to, and food never actually expires. It might very well be a grand marketing strategy pulled by the Behind-the-scenes schemers of the universe; all for the elaborate ploy of swindling us consumers into buying more of their stuff.
What say you then, Common Sense? What. Say. You. Then?
The idea that one’s self
Isn’t worthy enough,
Does far more hurt
Than the words or actions
Of another ever could
Thinking such thoughts,
It’s unbearably easy
To fall into despair,
But much harder
To burrow a way out
The darkness engulfs all,
Bearing down, snapping,
Like a rabid dog
Ready to bite
It slinks into the crevices,
All the nooks left unguarded
Soon, it has become
Just another part of you
And when it’s done,
You’re never quite the same,
Emotions and dreams torn away
The damage a mere thought
In the end, a person’s
Their own mind
"But I could do better."
Just a few hours more
A few more drops of sweat, blood and tears
A few more ounces of pain and sorrow
A few more touches, edits, fixes
"I know I could do better."
I had an off day
The atmospheric pressure killed my head
The alarm didn't ring this morning
The stars weren't properly aligned
"I could do better if..."
If I had more resources
Maybe some more glitter, spark, spunk
Maybe some more stamina, muscle, spine
Maybe some more intelligence, aptitute, talent
Never get caught in the cycle of "better"
Because "better" ultimately causes more suffering than good
And "good enough" gets the job done just as well
What if I don't know?
What if they don't want me?
What if he says no?
What if they don't believe me?
What if I run away?
What if I disappear?
What if I'm not okay?
What if you aren't here?
What if I am alone?
What if no one cares?
What if my chance was never blown?
What if my heart fills with despair?
What if I say the wrong word?
What if I lose you forever?
What if you tell me that's absurd?
What if again, I'll see you never?
The Sun Will Stop Burning
The Sun is a star. Like all stars, it will stop burning. It could happen at any moment. Although, it’s not estimated to burn out for another 5 billion years.
The Sun will stop burning. Everything in our Solar system will die.
What stops a person from realizing everything we know on Earth will eventually die without a Sun, and wanting to hurry along the process?
