Here he lies in his grave, The lonely fool, In his own simple world, Trapped in his cage, Where waited for a friend, Someone, anyone to come, Waiting till he was beneath his tombstone, But no one came.
He watched, From the only window in his prison, The only link he had to the world, His connection to others he knew, Who did not know him.
He tried to flee many of times, But ever time he left one room, He found himself in another, Though all alike, With the same window, But which each room, Feeling lonelier inside.
Someone once told me it was bad to be apathetic in life, at any point. I however, disagree. When I woke up in my chilly room this morning and looked out the window at a cloudy, pre-rain sky I knew it was going to be a, “go with the flow” day. Cleaning the house, making coffee, I was apathetic of everything around me that would usually annoy me or make me happy. And I began to think, is is bad to b apathetic?
People always told me when you don’t care or are in an such a state, you miss out on joys in life, on things that have potential to make you happy. I disagree. If something were to truly make me happy wouldn’t that emotion outdo my apathetic mood? If whatever it is I was doing made me happy usually, wouldn’t it just make me happy once again when I redid the task. I think apathy can be good, a state of mind where you’re at peace with everything. Where you’re not mad, angry, annoyed, upset, ecstatic or bubbly. It’s middle ground, a true balance of emotion. And I definitely think that’s something this world needs more of, balance (and emotion hehe). So, I guess my point is, is apathy as bad as people make it out to be?
