Mr. and Mrs. Jones

Have you always felt this way, "bigger, faster, stronger, smarter, better?" Were these things taught to you by a parent or did you observe them through out life? What was it that made them important to you?

These things, some say they make you, and define you. They even make you the envy of all.

In everything that you do you claim mastery, you claim dominance.

You knew before anyone else, you had it before anyone had even heard. It was old and a thing

"so yesterday"

to you the second someone else came to in the picture and said

"did you hear?"

I feel sad for your material heart. Things are the only comfort you have ever known. Your soul, so jaded by emptiness it has become a void, a negative space so deep and vacuous it pulls in on itself until it becomes nothing.

You are not a failure. In this age and place being "bigger, faster, stronger, smarter, better" is what thins the herd. It is what separates the winners from the losers, the weak from the strong.

What will happen when you are the only one?
