Not Fair

Many say that life is unfair,
At the cost of living many will survive.
Never let it be unsaid that I am unwilling to
Put the worth of others above myself.
Underneath the layers of lies, I hide myself.
Life is not fair, it isn’t supposed to be,
Anyone telling you differently is in it for something.
Teach me how life could be fair, because
Eventually I hope I can make it more so.

It is not the purpose of the world, of life, to be fair. It is the purpose of those of us born in this world to try to make it so through our own actions or inaction.

But not to be entered, because it just doesn’t feel like the one I want to enter. Anything else wouldn’t come, though. This demanded to be written.
