Honestly when it comes down to it,
When the rocky dirt road ends,
Nobody understands.
Nobody.
The blackness has oozed into life,
And made even the patter or rain painful.
You don’t, can’t, understand what it’s like to lace my shoes, nor walk in them.
The same fact spreads its wings and brushes against you.
You can speak of how the rain on your windowpane makes you feel, but I will look out that window if only a small step to your left.

What gives you the right to pick out someones imperfections?
Nobody wants the mountains of guilt knowing they are less than perfect.
Yet they judge others openly for the less than prying eyes of society.
Text at the top of the page judges another for any pimpple out of place.
The world is sedated on the topic of preached imperfections,
Forcing the plauge of judgment on another tortured generation.

I contemplated irony and why it makes me laugh, but then I remembered a gif about the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and realized that irony isn’t always funny.

I learned something important in highschool.

  • (A young girl that is about 14 years old walks in. She gets some looks from our other patrons, as she has bright purple hair, multiple piercings, a leather jacket, and ripped jeans. It is freezing outside and she has a scowl on her face that makes me nervous.)
  • Me: “Hello, welcome to [coffee shop]. How may I help you?”
  • Young Girl: “I’ll take five of the largest black coffees you have, and ten of your ham and cheese sandwiches.”
  • Me: “Okay, will that be all?”
  • Young Girl: “Yeah.”
  • Me: “Your total is [price].”
  • (To my surprise, she pulls out a $100 bill. I am suspicious, and I check to make sure it’s real. It checks out, and I give her a bag with her sandwiches.)
  • Me: “Here is your change. Your coffee will be ready in a moment.”
  • (I keep an eye on her as she stands around glaring at anyone who looks at her. I see her looking at the tip jar. When I hand her the coffees, she asks me about it.)
  • Young Girl: “Your tip jar says that the money goes to you guys. Are any of you in college?”
  • Me: “Yes, I’m going to Rochester Institute of Technology. A few others are in college as well.”
  • Young Girl: “Good for you.”
  • (She pulls out the change I gave her and a few more $20 dollar bills. She crams then in the jar and salutes me jokingly before walking out. I am stunned, and chase after her. I find her on the street corner talking to some homeless people and handing out the sandwiches and coffee.)
  • Me: “Excuse me!”
  • Young Girl: “I’m sorry, did I forget something?”
  • Me: “No, but you just tipped us over $100 dollars. You’re also giving away a lot of food.”
  • Young Girl: “Yeah, my dad is crazy rich. I feel like I can do more if I actually interact with people instead of signing a check to a charity. Every Friday I gather anyone I see who needs a good meal, and buy it for them.” *she smiles brightly* “I may be young, but I can make a difference. I usually hand out flyers for homeless shelters or soup kitchens, too.”
  • (Without another word, she walks off silently. I didn’t stop smiling for the rest of the week. It goes to show you that appearances aren’t everything!)
