Many don't understand
how powerful irresponsibility is.
So many choices that are made
that seem inconsequential have origins in
or are the result of
or result themselves in
In one sense this is meaningful

For every one that justifies 'goodness' through the understanding
of the precious mundaneity of life

The ones that remain indifferent and
live their lives with a mawkish neediness.
They live in-between superstitions
and in fear of the world around them
within multiple hierarchies that enchain their movements,
their appearances, their beliefs.
