I am nobody—so they read but do not see.
My voice is not one of consequence—so they perceive but can’t hear me.
Though I speak of truths—though my intention is honorable—they just see the fool.
Oh how youth does betray—forever cast as a buffoon—never to receive merit.
In one eye and out the other—the sight of my ramblings—why even bother?
Just keep scrolling—quick before you see.
Avert your gaze—divert your thoughts…
Think not about the cretin—see not the words he wrought.
Would be a lie to deny deflation—there can simply be no elation.
The nothing must accept its fate—that “nothing is not better or worse than anything…”
“…nothing is just nothing”—and nothing does not need validation—for it just is.
And when you are nothing “…you have nothing left to lose…”
“…you’re invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.”
Written by Matthew – 2015
