    Don't Have To Either

    IT'S a Brutal World

    This world has always been a pretty harsh place, and with things being as dire as they are right now, it's kind of easy to see how some people become twisted or detach from the OTHER reality, that of compassion and caring.  Some people don't have any love in their lives...

    i discriminate

    I can't stand cruelty, not against animals, nor against humans.  Neither do I understand the dark pleasures of cruelty.  I know that some people just enjoy to be mean and sadistic.  Let me say that I reject them insofar that the racism that's inside me is...
