End of the World (Draft 1)

The Semi-End of the World(Draft 1)

I didn’t know I
had to join the
crying society
to have legitimate tears

I don’t want to hear
any damn criticism
that I did it to myself
and it’s my fault

I DO want to feel
sorry for myself
beyond the stupid cliché

Yeah, I get it
you don’t care

But I think
in terms of empathy
you’re an idiot
and a devil in your
ignorant ways

So the world ends.
