You’re kidding, right?
Is this some kind of sick, screwed up joke?
Why can’t you pick on somebody else? Someone mean, someone evil. Why do you threaten a man who has worked hard all of his life, from dawn ‘till dusk? Someone who is finally done serving the community and crossed the threshold into retirement only a month ago? A man who has been nothing but gentle, kind, helpful and dedicated. A man who is an expert in his field of work. An inspiration and mentor to me.
At least end the terrible pain and grant him some happiness with his loved ones. His wife, children and grandchildren. That’s the least you can do.
Please, Life, Goddess, God, Energy –by whatever name you wish to present yourself– please show mercy and perform a miracle.
Life, I do love you. But today, today I hate you.
