Hopelessly Dreaming

Even though we may know,
The proper,
Ethical way(s),
That’s most practical to go,

Sometimes,
the pain is so bad,
We just go mad,

Maybe,
our irrationality,
is no more likely,
To be dangerous or bad,
As opposed the belief that,
people “need” treatment..
For stability,
Regardless if is or is NOT constitutional,
Or ethical..?

Hence,
in that case,
The lucrative pharmaceutical industry,
convinces people they,
“always” need medication to avoid,
catastrophic situations..
Would be the industry,
feeding off of fear..

And well,
Regardless,
As for me,
And the pain I carry,
When I try to make people hear me,
By saying,
Even though I believe violence,
does NOT,
internally cleanse and enlighten us,
Sometimes,
When my needs,
For being heard..
Are always ignored..,

When my rational awareness,
Is constantly dismissed,
By irrationality,
I’ll also develop irrationality,
And in my own ways,
Succumb to the toxic mentality,

And when I say something that I do NOT truly mean,
Like,
“I wish I had a gun”,
It’s a cry for help,
Due to not feeling close to sufficient,
If any helpful,
present,
Empathy,

Yet after hearing this,
Most others seem to,
STILL..
just lecture me,

..

Instead of acknowledging,
That I did NOT mean what I said,
But that,
I was in so much pain,
So I therefore,
expressed an unconscious reaction,
in order,
to be,
compassionately,
heard,

Yet from others,
I mostly receive,
unconscious,
Excessively fearful,
Emotional,
response(s),

So..
I wish,
Others will,
Empathetically,
HEAR ME,
When I say,
I wish,
We could,
Cleanse more,
The toxic forces of irrationality,
So it’ll consume,
LESS,
in society,

So we’ll,
further experience,
and newly discover,
new levels of capability,

And for one,
I would guess..
With MORE rational empathy,
We’ll MORE likely,
work together MORE CLEARLY,
For,
more true benefit and safety,
For always more,
And more,
of everybody..?

So,
As I’d guess,
we’ll be more likely,
To experience,
more fulfillingly,
And more likely,
To avoid,
Catastrophe

?

And even I feel I’m hopelessly dreaming..
?
Well,
I just thought,
These thoughts and feelings,
Are worth considering

  1. I like your words about ‘rational empathy.’ I agree that being patient and deeply listening is very important. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this Zach. It helps me (and maybe others too) better understand your experience.
