VESTED DISINTEREST
(10/6/15)


I'm sorry

I really
am

I'm sorry
if you don't
feel a part
of the proceedings

but since
you are entrenched
within
the midst
of them

I don't
understand
how you could
feel
so separated

I know

you're
an isolated
anomaly

no one
has ever
experienced
your feelings
of alienation
before

will ever
experience
them
again

you are
unique

I understand

I really
do

but please
realize
that only you
can give yourself
meaning
in this world

it will not
happen
for you

no one
will construct
a cocoon
of purpose
and accomplishment
on your
behalf

your activity
is important
only if
you lend a measure
of importance
to what you do

whatever
it is

but that's
up to you

you're on
your own
on this planet

you always
have been

you always
will be

stop looking
outside

look within

your meaning
has always
been there

trade
your telescope
for a mirror

get on
with it

get out
of my face
