It seems that the older I get, the more complicated things become, and the uglier I see the world to be.  Even if one tries to do good, many times it is for nothing.  The evil around us just drowns it out.  I could die right now, and it would not matter much to even those who seem closest to me.  My use to them would be no more, that is all; and my body and mind no longer able to be owned or manipulated.

Their hearts grown cold, if not hardened to stone, by greed, deceit, betrayal, envy, revenge, cruelty, and selfishness, among other negative elements that murder good, peace, harmony, growth, happiness, and love.

Frankenstein monsters -- you try to make them human, and have a human heart.  Yet they cannot be controlled, and continue to wreak havoc, destroying what's around them and usually towards their creator's ruin.  Still, you hope they would one day be able to see and change for the better.

Through it all, I've grown to see the bitter truth, of others but also of me too.  I've realized how weak I truly am, and how those around me either contribute to my weaknesses, or are disgusted by them or resent me for them.

Maybe there are others, or someone out there who is not as cruel.  I don't know if I would ever be fortunate enough to encounter that shooting star.  But even if I did, what is left of me to offer?  I am no longer the same as I was before.  The soul, worn and beaten.  You can't live years amongst demons and not pay the price.  Nevertheless, I continue to dream... that maybe there is a beautiful world waiting for me.
