People hate anyone that gets anything.
Positive or negative —
Jealousy is omnipresent, the other thing about it is
That if you bully, punish, discriminate
Otherwise ostracize and humiliate
And then yell at them
And say they are doing this
Playing the victim
To “feel special” it’s like
Well— where do you think they got the idea from…?
Maybe the way you treat them or the way their experience
Oscillates between what’s normal and what’s not. It’s easy to hate a unicorn
For being special, it’s tired and boring
To scale rainbow fish, it’s honestly just kind of
Atrocious, hunters hunting what makes anyone special besides
Monetary value— lest anyone get distracted
From what really matters— the most special among us
The self-righteous warriors
And the embodiment of those ideals, the people who
Demand special treatment with special churches and
The people who are most certainly
“Not special” and don’t at all live their lives
As many degrees separated as is possible.
Yes, go ahead
Make fun of people for wanting to
As if that isn’t somehow universal.
Maybe it’s time we acknowledge that
Each one of us is longing after something special, and
That’s what makes life worth it.
