I am, I am not, I don't know

I'm not like you
Exactly
But we are more alike than not
Mostly
The same
Why do our differences
Divide
Does the chasm fill
You
With as much despair as
Me
Do you dwell on the mystery
Too?

It's not really a mystery to me, our ancestors screw up their brains and we are still all bat shit crazy.

Screw it, I'm going camping in the morning, humanity can go to hell.

yes friend i dewelled long
on the mystery
filling with despair
to see the chasm
the abyss
the difference...
once i closed my eyes not to see it
and then a miracle happened;
i didn't see you
in front of me
different and unlike
i felt you by my heart
similar and alike...
my senses at times
mislead me a bit
they show me
someone in front of me
while
it's just my reflection
in the mirror...

I no longer dwell
On the mystery

I no longer
Make divisions

I no longer
Despair

I no longer
Fear
The chasm

We try
So hard
To fill it
With pretense
Fashion
Food
Sports
Envy

I am past that now
And I travel openly
Unabashedly
As myself

Take inventory
Of all you possess
That has any true value
And you will find
That you can share these things
Without ever losing them

For the best things in life
Are not things
At all

NowI have lived
To see up close
And personal
Some of the darkest days
Mankind has ever had to face

I can tell you right here
And right now
That when things were their worst
Humanity did not go camping
Nor did it go to hell
Humanity stood shoulder to shoulder
Withstood the darkness
And faced the void without fear

Trust me
