Hollywood Hillz

They say,
even for scum, that
it has potential. Potential
means
nothing
unless you act on it.

A cute puppy has more potential
to become a better
human than I
do.
Sometimes, you can actually feel
it when something is
unbearably idiotic.
As if your
soul
(or lack thereof)
was being tenderized by a
rampant
waste of time.
Nothing hurts a working
mind
more than that.

Working mind, as in,
a mind that constantly
has the need to best another.
That,
in itself,
an addiction. Though, if it
wins consistently,
it makes the rules.
Not unlike history is made in
accordance to those with more
artillery.
Fighting to win,
sadly reaps more benefits
than
fighting for
a cause.
