Selective Empathy

  A selective empathetic is a more sinister evil than the outright unempathetic. The unempathetic is quite small in numbers, and are under more scrutiny. The selective empathetic is one of reflective desire, picking and choosing those to be glad for and wishing to prosper based off of desired personal gain, gain that involves putting others down in the process. This level of empathy is pure submission to outside preachers, outside systems, media, literature, art, and economics, and represents a dark and fallible inner sense. Letting things simply happen, apathetic to their greater truth, nihilistic in meaning, and a walking product of guiding forces around them. A pure empathetic is empathetic to all in all situations, noticing the humanity in all. It is sad to notice the selective empathetic being a prevalent and lauded endeavor, when the qualities of such selective empathetic are thought of also as manipulation.

You leave the cinema with an alligator learning of presence.

Your life lie in his mind, his hands.

Undisturbed, the life you wished, vanishing without sight. 

Mother spoke you into a lonely frenzy.

Plea with the law of ineptitude, foresaw you guilty.

Your blast of plastic emotion frostbit the last of every souls perception.

Perfection was admitted as repentance.

Laughing off the sentence was believed to allow your individuality.

Plastered all throughout the tunnels of your choice was the image displaying all evil.

Breathtaking views of oily machines sent shivers up the spine you forced.

Reality played your vindictive thoughts.

You released the handle's lever.
