I Cared

Dear Caesar,

I never touched your wife.

I never hurt your kids.

I protected them like they were my own.

I saw what you had and I wanted it.

You have a beautiful family.

That’s all I ever wanted.

A unit, a collection, a team – that’s all I ever wanted.

You will never read this, but you motivated me in a way.

The American Dream that’s what I saw in you.

But now I am losing feeling.

I am becoming a robot, and I am losing my ability to empathize.


It’s cold.

Inside, it’s cold.

But now I go out into the world and put a fake smile.

Smile for them.

Lie to them.

Tell them everything is alright.

Everything is alright.

: )
