I hate people, just in general. No specifics really...ok a few specifics. I hate their inane babble. The dull utterance of daily life. The grimy gutter filth that thinks of nothing more then his next television fix. The common everyday man, I hate him and he needs to die. He needs to die within me as well. I want no more of him. He has made a home in my soul, the part of me that cares about the flip flops I'm wearing. That person needs to be hit by a bus being driven by Jack Kerouac.
 
In my mind there is no higher calling then that of making ones own life worth something more ethereal, spiritual...something that you can draw meaning from that has nothing to do with what the fashion trends are, where Survivor is being filmed, who in Hollywood dislikes Sarah Palin, or OJ Simpson being guilty. 
 
I desire with everything in me to be able to prescribe to the notion that every human being on this earth has something within them to contribute to the world. Something meaningful, something that is not PETA...not Democrat...not Republican...not even American. Something human, divinely flawed and hideously beautiful. This thing must make us confront an ugly truth and replace it with a painful one. This matter of the soul and heart must make us willing to overcome obstacles. A catalyst to discover our true nature as homely or heroic as it might be. Drive us towards tomorrow and give us hope beyond the cover sheet for TPS reports. It must give us a definition, a box in which we can classify ourselves but never be trapped in. An open box postmarked with our past and filled with our passions sans the packing tape. I also would not dare deprive anyone of their styrofoam peanuts.
 
Humanity! What a glorious insanity this concept is! It must be a complete acknowledgement of our carnal nature while being transcendent of it. My mind reels, recoils, flinches, and falters when trying to encompass it with a precise definition that gives it a truth, a form, and a shape that is not painful to the literary or mental eye.
