People are not good.
Compassion is not natural
Or instinctive.
When push comes to shove
Humans are selfish
And shallow creatures.
We mourn those who die
Simply because we lose
the person and what they can give.
We show sympathy and generosity
Only out of self service
And are never satisfied
With anything.
We kill whatever gratitude or kindness
That exists in us,
For we all know
The ultimate instinct is survival 
with as little pain as possible.
We all strive to live painless,
Guiltless
ignorant lives, and in turn
Blind ourselves to 
Our own folly.
We are doomed to exist 
as aimless, greedy souls
Cursed with consciousness
In search of fulfillment
That in the end
No one
ever
finds.
