The stars are barely visible.
I go through the motions
Of starting a new day.
I wave and smile,
Shivering in the still dark morning.
Every house has a paper
On their doorstep.
Others wear thick, warm, woolen sweaters.
Silence permeates the air
As tension would.
Hand in hand,
This thing has no end,
Dawn awakens the sleepy earth,
I am standing in awe.
No real thoughts in my head,
No expectation, no desire.
Elvis Fan Jailed For Cruelty To Pigs
The part of life that has always confounded me time and again is how some people can function with absolutely no conscience. I don’t understand it.
On one hand, I am relieved that I don’t get it, because that would be pretty terrifying in and of itself, lol!
So, what do I mean by all of this? I will give you some examples. People with no conscience in my opinion, are ones who can be cruel to animals, children, elderly without even thinking twice about it and having no remorse at all for having done so. I guess hurting anyone in general like that would fit the bill, now that I am thinking about it.
Another example is someone who could cheat, steal, kill, abandon their child… the list goes on, but I think you can get an idea.
One would think, after doing some growing up, and learning some harsh lessons in life that I would not be surprised anymore when I see something on the news where a child is abused, or read about hate crimes. But, it always makes me shake my head in disbelief.
So tell me, what part of life confuses YOU the most? I am interested to know others’ answers to this question. 🙂
