It is interesting how I can look upon this world with both awe and disgust, how I can love and hate people at the same time. Humans are such contradictory creatures. They pretend as if they possess a full understanding of the decaying world around them. They are merely servants of time, drifting endlessly about until the sand stops falling in their pathetic hour glasses. These creatures do not deserve the world of light that they mockingly receive. They are indeed "God's" favorites. Them...with their weaknesses, their flaws, and their sins. Perhaps that is why this world confuses me, because I fail to grasp to contradictory ideals of man. We are told to live life as loving, sympathetic beings, and yet we are the only creatures who would skin our enemies and sprinkle salt on their backs, we are the only creatures who believe that we are the "better" or "more important" species, and in our uprising of arrogance we fail to see the truths behind the facades and the ignorant outlooks on life. And I--unlike most feel banished from the rest of mankind; feel as though my life is meaningless because my views are not so clouded and paradoxical.
As we are told to love and to accept one another we are as well, the only creatures who slaughter and murder each other over religious and/or spiritual debates and sexual orientation. So to quote Mark Twain--"who is truly the lowest animal?"
"If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous, he will not bite you; that is the principal difference between a dog and a man." -Mark Twain
