I thought I might feel left out. I thought I might feel a little alone. But the truth is…I didn’t. I waited for that feeling of solitude that didn’t come at all. Sitting there…listening to you doing what you were meant to do…what we were meant to do. I didn’t feel alone, I didn’t feel competitive, I didn’t feel anything at all.
So we would always do things different from each other. So what…it happens. Mirrors images are always reversed from the original image. The point is that no matter how you do it, how you go about…you’d always give a damn about it won’t you? You’d never leave someone behind. Even someone you don’t know. But then again…I have never seen you deal with someone you don’t know on that level.
But that’s not the point.
You just…care that’s all. That’s more to say that what we’ve been through. You know what it’s like to be unheard. You know what it’s like to be all alone. You know what its like to be staring at that wall knowing that your life…your destiny is as blank as it is. Deep down inside…maybe you too don’t want them to be alone. You too don’t want them to go unheard. Don’t want their cries to echo in the emptiness that we wailed in. Someone needs to give a damn about them.
Why not someone who walked that road?
That’s why you don’t have to worry about failing. You don’t have to worry about not changing anything…because you already are. In the end, it isn’t whether we succeed or fail. We should know that by now. Failure doesn’t mean we didn’t make it better. Failure doesn’t mean that we stop the proverbial bullet for them. Failure for us means we stopped giving a damn…stopped giving a damn for the people we’re supposed to look out for.
That’s our cause for failure.
You know it, I know it.
So sititng there…I don’t mind. I don’t mind leaning back. I don’t mind you head on my lap. I don’t mind the phone conversations. You know why? Because if you were in the same position…you wouldn’t mind too. Because it is what we do. It is who we are. It is what we will always be.
We’re people that will never stop giving a damn.
