Damn...Us Humans.

I almost feel silly for telling you what I want

when you did not ask for my words…

But isn’t that what most humans do?

They speak, demand to be heard,

& don’t shut up until someone says something in return.


Damn…us humans.


So complex, & yet so simple in areas that

we end up making complex to follow suit for everything else.

Like, listen to me.

I’m trying to make that sentence complex when it doesn’t need to be.


Damn…us humans.


In truth, I’m telling you what I want because I feel that others want some of these things, too…

But they won’t say it.

So, I will

Because. Damnitt. I want to be heard.


No.

Fuck that.


I want to be listened to.


A concept for most who are too busy trying to respond to what I’ve just said that they completely ignore the words that have fallen from my lips

& have the nerve to ask me to repeat myself.


Seriously?

Damn…us humans.


I’m tired.


Of not having simple things

Authentic things

Love

Happiness.


I’m tired.


Of people apologizing for feeling how they feel

apologizing for being honest

Being who they choose to be.


I’m tired.


Of nonbelievers telling believers that we

“Live in a fantasy” because their minds

Are underdeveloped

& incapable of seeing past the brainwashing

& systematic oppressions they’re experiencing.


Damn…us humans.


With our privilege

& our excuses for how we respond & react to things

when people call us on our shit.


With our wants

With our selfishness

With our inconsideration.


“I didn’t ask for…”


Well, hey, hi. Yes, you.

hi.

None of us really asked for a life or to be human.


Jesus pieces. Are you listening to me again?

How selfish & privileged is that statement?


DAMN…US humans.


You didn’t ask me

But i’m going to tell you

anyway.


I want better.

For us

Them

Everything coexisting on this planet, floating in outer space

That we’re all stuck on.


I want better.

Because I know that the world

Can be better.

Better than what it is

Right now.


So

You didn’t ask me.

But I’ll tell you anyway.

Because I’m human.

& I want something.


& I wanna know what you’re going to do

To help me make this better.


Because this is unfair.


To us

Them

Everything coexisting on this planet, floating in outer space

That we’re all stuck on.


What are you gonna do?


& I swear to gosh if you tell me you’ll do nothing….

Well….


Damn…us humans.



May your day be ever filled with love, light, and of course, an abundance of chicken tenders💜🌻✨
