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. A great contradiction in social morality and personal character judgeme

Time's Love and Hate


Notice the time once again

Laminating its officiality in the minds of the perceivers

Through the flow of morality, of experience, and of the functions of life.

The time,

Leaning its influence and fate on the gas pedal of motion

Leading us into a chasm or into greater pastures

The anticipation never fades.

Attracting souls together

Through love, mutuality, and empathy

Time interacts with experience in seemingly opposite ways.

Though time attracts

It also detaches

From one soul to another

Time fades when life collapses.

Between this collapse and birth,

Time runs

Through enjoyment, and through resentment

Time mirrors our contortion

Though time continues without our consent,

We learn to love the joys and hate the bads

Our experiences reflect time's wishes,

And we hope beyond its restrictions.
