a letter to the human race

My biggest regret used to be you. Well not just you, specifically the entire human race. Not following? I figured that much. Let me break it down a bit. Everyone has things they’ve done they wish they could take back. Well for a long time I wished I could take back creating the human race. No need to starting repenting and atoning for your sins. I’ve thankfully moved past that sentiment. I remember how excited I was when I first made you. Sure there were a couple kinks here and there you weren’t perfect but I guess that’s sort of your thing. You were full of such promise and the possibilities seemed endless especially with all that free will.

The early days were great. I recall watching you make new discoveries about the world around you with such fondness. As time went on I couldn’t help but become completely captivated by you. I had other responsibilities but they all seemed pointless in comparison to you. However, as the years droned on we began to grow apart. I was unprepared for dealing with something like this. So naturally I got angry and you did as well. I can’t be surprised that you did but I never expected it to go so far. My wrath, contrary to popular belief, was no match for yours.

While I destroyed cities you destroyed dreams and in turn yourself. You practically became me. For the first time in my existence I was scared. The only feeling that trumped my fear was shame. I was ashamed to call you mine. Ashamed that my name was the one on your tongue in times of peril. I considered ending it a few times. I nearly did but I ended up changing my mind at the last second. Life with you didn’t turn out the way I expected.

I suppose the gift I gave you is full of the unexpected. I just needed you to show me that. I’ve been here from the very beginning and when the time is right I’ll be there at the end. I guess this was my long winded way of saying I love you. Always have and always will.


Yours Truly,
