even like myself

much too dark
where i come from
much too bright
where i go

i want to change
the whole world now
but i am
not able to

i don’t like
all these people
i hate the
way they live

the things they eat
and drink and
all their friends
they are with

waiting for a
thing i love

but what is it?
but what do I like?
not the sunshine at day
not the moonlight at night
I live a life off the shelf
and i don’t even like myself

disgust the heat
of summer
almost as much
as cold

like nature,
trees and flowers,
kids and pets
as much as mold
