Who am I?
I am the awkward silence to a simple question.
I am the vice they say will kill you.
I am the disease you get when proper protection was not used.
I am the natural result of all things.
I am the shoulder shrug of simpletons.
I am the unresponsive response.
I am the first one that won't harm you, and,
I am the last one that will.
I am neither your high nor your low.
I am neither weak nor strong.
I am nothing and yet I exist.
While those around me played, I worked.
While those who played succeeded, I fell further behind.
While those who succeeded found love, I was hated.
While those who found love suffered, I found comfort.
While those who suffered fell ill, I remained healthy.
While those who fell ill died, I lived on.
It is clear now, what the fates held in store.
It is clear what my position is, my 'Lot in life.'
For I have always been the middle ground, never good enough for Heaven and never evil enough
For I am the one who stays home while others race to their lives.
I am the one who drinks while others find comfort in lovemaking.
Iam the one who laughs at misfortune.
I am the one who sees the blessings in terminal conditions.
I am the one that is the middle, never too close (you think that's creepy) never too far (you
must maintain your image in society as a 'nice' person).
I 'Love you' but I am not 'In love with you'.
I 'Just want to be friends'.
I am indifference.
For I am Apathy, the icon of uncaring.
I am Apathicon, the self proclaimed Purgatory God.
