Hurt

I hurt. I hurt because no one cares. No one gives a shit. About me about you about anything. And I’m supposed to just suck it up and move on. I’m supposed to harden my heart and keep going. And this hurts. This happens all day, every day, again and again and again…. I’ve seen people who can do it. And when I question the they swat their hands and say “It’s no big deal.” The fact that they don’t give a shit about someone doing something shitty cuz they don’t give a shit IS a big deal. Cuz that’s a lot of shit going around. We keep piling it up. One day we won’t see anything but piles of shit. Or has that day come? Is there just so much shit that people forgot to look up at the shy or down at their feet? To look beyond the pile of shit? To love. What happened to us?
