You assume
That because I do not wallow in suffering and self-pity
Because I did not take my life
Because I do not act out on you
The violence imposed onto me
That it must not have been that bad
Your attitude is sick
Enabling feeding fostering
The mindset
That keeps this world trapped in decay
Self-destructing while destroying
Over and over
Through the generations
You shun excellence
High standards
The demand to rise above
To do whatever it takes
To expect and create
Something Else
Self-righteous in your fury
You fixate on me
Attempting to take what I have
Instead of get what you need
Relentlessly self-righteously
Determined to bring all of us
Down down down
