Day 78 – Your Failed Façade

Unfiltered
Impure
Destructive
Outrageous
Shameful
Hear it
Breathe it
Inhale it
Drink it
Suffocate in it
Be intoxicated by it
Yes, yes, you like it
Take it in
Be involved
Dive into it
Embrace it
Love it
Taste it
It’s heavy
It’s light
It’s too easy
It’s too hard
It’s delicious
It’s deadly
It supplies you
It nourishes you
It encourages you
It allows you
To move
With each disgusting action
Go ahead
Continue
Keep doin’ what you do
What you’ve chosen to pursue
With each step you take
Each bone that you break
A wound will start to ache
For its selfishness you demonstrate
It will reverse
And collect
Solidify
And validate
And confirm to me

The truth:

You move with guilty actions
Nothing with us in mind
So go on ahead
Go forward
Keep walking
Though you’re blind
