Nihil before me

life is cheap
so it has been said
it is time to rip
the band-aid off
of your existential dread
you better learn now
you better learn quick
know there is nothing sacred

no holy ghost
nor gods of yore
will lick your wounds
will clean your sores
nor magic potions
nor ancient runes

worshipping your god
a cosmic joke
do as you’re told
the iron yoke
obey all the rules
a quest for fools
be as they are
is that what you enjoy
i’ve got one thing
on this earth
one thing that
is of any worth
an impulse to destroy

if you’re looking for truth
you won’t find it here
if you’re looking for meaning
all you’ll find is fear

ideals have been shattered
the sheep have been scattered
nothing ever mattered

nihil before me

-JG

Time enough for hate

you ask me why i hate
go look at the rivers and seas
you ask me why i hate
yet you can’t see the forest for the trees
you ask me why i hate
but you struggle to breathe
you ask me why i hate
because you demand equality
you ask me why i hate
and you curse those in poverty
you ask me why i hate
while you gorge yourself to obesity

i’ll tell you why i hate
go take a look at yourself
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your arrogant ignorance
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your self-entitled posturing
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your active idleness
i’ll tell you why i hate
because of your fraudulent behavior

i hate
because you’re destroying
the things i love
