...WhatWentWrong... just another shout into the oblivion that is the ever humming, always buzzing -> interweb

What in the
WholeWideWorld
is wrong with ME?

I’m smack in the middle of
an overgrown forest,
yet I can’t shake this feeling,
that I
am the ONLY TREE.

Alone,
yet surrounded.
With each passing day,
I feel less grounded.

I’m floating away
from this place,
from this race
of mad humans (mad humanity)
who are floating away
from their own imagined damnation
straight into the
(impatiently waiting)
chilly embrace
of their collective ruination.

What difference will it make?
Dead or awake?
Alive or half baked?
No one notices.
No one cares.

If they remember anything at all,
(in times like these)
it will be trivial
at best.
Like the inappropriate way
I dressed (up)
or all those times that I got really
messed (up).

They won’t recall that,
I used to care (a lot)
I used to cry (for us all)
and feel and smile
and wonder and want.

I used to exist.
I USED TO EXIST
in a place, a space, a time
with people; friends and family
where I cared
where I dared
to dream of
Bigger Better MORE
where I cared
where I dared
to speak those dreams aloud
Bigger Better MORE

Now all that’s left is MORE
more of us
than ever before
stinking up our planet
abusing her like a whore
more choices (seemingly)
more information
(dis or mis only, please)
more envy
more fear
more to consume
more reasons to just stay in your room
more just out of your reach
more guilt
more anger
MORE MORE MORE
but none of
them
but none of
that
brings me any joy.
(how could it?)

I have no outlet for my pain.
I have no hope for my (our) future.

I don’t even like me.
Why would anyone else?
(do you like yourself?)

Every day that passes,
I see, unmistakably,
that there is
NOTHING
here for me,
and there never will be.

shake your head in pained disdain
but make no mistake
your fate will surely be the same
