23 And 1

23 and I

I'm surrounded by pain, greed, envy, and the most powerful: anger. Cut off from the outside world, I watch men of all races be ridiculed to the most deadly of insignificances.

All the while knowing the creation they are building is one of the world's most apathetic. No elaborately neurotic weapons man has ever been built. Stripping a man of his most basic rights and confining him to a number. This is worse than modern day slavery. Some saw we are given the tools to succeed and to progress. Some say only to succeed and progress back to that of which you came. I close the curtains after the windows are shut because the storm is too unbearable. Am I wrong to want better?
