"They laugh at me because I'm different. I laugh at them because they're all the same"(Kurt Cobain).

Am I a monster

For trying to empathize 

With those who never sympathize?


Am I a bundle of insanity 

For bearing too much humanity?

-or amity to your dauntless?


If a man drove a machine

Without the instinct to kill,

And yet he did make that kill,

Shall he be killed?


Now, still,

Imagine he is you,


No home.


Crash and bash,

And a crumbling figure

With a name, a home,

Bears now only blood and bone.



I shall return

To the rumble of the Earth,


Inside a deep girth,

I cried and yet,

I've seen worse.
