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.
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.
