Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.
I am not in this world to live up to others' expectations, nor do I feel that the world must live up to mine.
== Fritz Perls
Why should you suffer for world's stupidity
no one is asking for your opinion or advice
and why be bothered by the news morbidity
media business is not even meant to be nice.
Other people's games are their own affairs
they don't know how to end what they start
and when you're in trouble world won't care
they are just so quick to tell you to get smart.
World is nothing but one colossal abstraction
to know it, hundred lifetimes wouldn't suffice
and yet, we judge it by that familiar fraction
hesitant between images of hell or paradise.
If you want to empathize with the mankind
your choice of feelings couldn't be tougher
for, how do you really make up your mind
whether to be happy for them or to suffer.
World you hardly know shouldn't make you worry
shouldn't even have concerns of your own nation
and for all that world's misery you can't feel sorry
while from those rejoicing you won't get invitation.
