I found this piece today that I had wrote on April 1st of 2007. I slightly updated the links to bring it current because I wanted to share it with you here. Although I occasionally do feel this way now, I am happy to report that those feelings are not as lingering nor as intense as they were before.
For this reason, I see hope
I hate politics. I hate politicians. I hate what it’s done to me.
I hate this country. I hate what it has become.
I used to be proud. I was ignorant. Now I am despondent and full of hate.
I used to be patriotic. I was naive. I feel like I was raped.
I used to be a good parent. Now I am poison. My hate steals their youth and innocence.
No one cares and I’ve given up trying to. Humanity and society can go to hell for all I care.
Politicians aren’t human. They are liars. Some just lie more then others.
The future grows dimmer and the true path grows narrower. Whatever happens so be it. The truth was known and I spoke it.
I am the Lorax and for what it is worth, I spoke for humans. I am going away and I don’t know if I’ll ever come back.
I feel sad and I am going to cry. I hope I die.
