I live in this culture but I don’t feel a part of it, I feel totally disconnected, disjointed, on the outside looking in, Alienated, discarded like yesterdays trash. I speak but my words get twisted and spit out into fits of indifference. my screams go unheard by the masses, sipping on their brews on monotony, droning on with their useless character assassinations of one another, while the waiter looks on with disgust.

And I watch from a safe distance, alone, wanting to be a part of but at the same time silently judging them for they know not what they do, they hate and they hurt and they lie and it’s become second nature, like breathing or placing the fingers furiously on the keyboard, churning out the inner ramblings of a mad man who neither fits nor is joined in this circus we call a society.

I will continue to float alone but content in being my own man,at least for time being.

  1. Simply put. Brilliantly expressed. You are an island of sane humanity in a cruel sea. We need more of you. Keep saying what you feel. It is clear and true.

  2. You’re never alone, Dave. Sometimes we isolate ourselves because we get in that I’m alone, or I don’t fit in mindset. God is always with us. If we acknowledge Him he sets our paths straight. Keep ackowleding Him, and asking for what you need. And keep reaching out to others. Someone will reach back. But don’t forget to acknowledge those who are already reaching out. Our biggest barrier is ourselves.

  3. As you say, they know not what they do. Try to remember one thing. How they react, speak or judge is not about you. It is completely about them. They carry hurt, pain, abandonment, and sadness throughout their lives and they don’t even know it. That is why they react as they do. It has nothing to do with you. You are your own man. Feel proud that you are more evolved and open to the wonders of the world. Find happiness in the special gift you are to this world because that is exactly what you are.


  4. I think a lot of us feel this way, and personally, I think that’s a good thing. Why should we all conform to the rules and expectations of this culture? Why can’t we be our own individuals, thinking our own thoughts? Unfortunately, that’s a lonely life to live sometimes, but I think it’s better to live a life true to ourselves and find those one or two people who accept us for who we are, than any other kind of life. I hope you continue to be your own man 🙂
