Amateur Hour At The Philosophy Club

The assumption always was

That I am a kind person

Because I knew how people felt

A lot of the time


But then I learned that 

I am very observant

So I knew how people felt

Because I could see it


So the assumption then became

That I am smart

Because the lack of


Is not particularly a virtue 


But, for a long time

I thought

I wans’t kind 

Because my ability to be 

Indifferent sometimes

Is staggering


So the assumption was then

That I’m a complicated person

Which in this case

Is code for




It’s hardly by choice

But you do see the dangers of 

Blaming society

To be a product of it

So here we shall move on

And continue assuming responsibility and making assumptions


The result of that 

Is that

Now the assumption is that I am 

A sensible person


However, I’d really like to be kind

And the question here becomes

Not whether or not

One can be kind

Or Unkind,


The question here becomes,

Can one be kind 

And unkind

Within the same exact person?


I’ll actually leave that to the 

Philosophers to ponder


I’d rather write poetry

Than try to assess my values

As a human being


Not like there is anything I can do 

About that anyway.
