Leave me out
from the mortality of your barbarity,
humanity, committed hopelessly to ignorance,
preferring noise to music,
violence and sexual abuse to love,
the pursuit of vulgarity and wallowing therein
instead of finding peace in nature,
which you rather irresponsibly pollute
and poison than take care of and enjoy;
but I don't judge you or condemn you
but condemn myself instead
to constant alienation from you all
in an eternity of exile in myself
to spare myself the pain of seeing the perdition
of the inhumanity that could have been humanity.
