Existing In An Absurd World   1 comment

There are times

I’m not a female,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t male

I’m not a black,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t a white

I’m not immortal,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t mortal

I’m not a doubter,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t a believer

I’m not a conservative,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t a liberal

I’m not a saint,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t sinful

I’m not ignorant,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t learned

I’m not implicit
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t explicit

I’m not an Islamic,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t a Christian

I’m not an animal,
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t a human

I’m not in
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t out

I’m not lonely
But there are times
I wish there was an opposite

I’m not you
But there are times
I wish I wasn’t me —

But there are times
You are the opposite
Of the opposite of you
