Ash Wednesday! Reddit and Weep
Reddit And Weep
Written By: Ash Catcher
I wanted to take some time to address this via a thread.
The things that most people post anon would never admit on their deathbed.
But will blast it out on the internet for all to see, permanently etched in Java Script or HTM- HELL.
Broken down over time, kept perfectly intact, each chronological lie, all lacking moral.
Never understood why people poured out their heart and soul.
When in real life you could never keep it together, or take control.
Suddenly I came across this handle that seemed a bit all too familiar.
After a little bit of reading, I can sort of make out your words, through the societal filters.
The freedom to be this other person, who is kind and encouraging to strangers.
I guess it's true what they say about all entertainers.
You’re always ON, and you are all a bit OFF, using people as props and stuff.
But your profile, sheesh that is where I guess you are really you, reality doesn’t seem enough.
At times I’ll stumble upon a thread and there you will have commented on something again.
You are positive and encouraging, your words sound quite reserved and zen.
But then I remember the version of you I got.
I laugh and smile about how I am better off.
How words are nice and neat and all.
Hidden behind all those lies, and firewalls.
Duck down, and hide behind your computer or phone.
I guess it would be unorthodox to have your cover blown.
But reddit, and weep this shit is entertainment to me.
I Love it when people who hurt me try to act like they have a kindness to strangers degree.
I love seeing the real versions of people, unedited, and filled with bugs.
The broken, unhinged prototypes ruled by vices like alcohol, and drugs.
Sometimes we are authentically and unapologetically us in real life and the digital world.
IRL people are just dicks, nothing can change, there is no amount of time, it's just what I observed.
On most nights when I can't sleep, there is a place I can go to talk anon about anything.
I think I prepared myself for this my whole childhood, way too much time playing SIMS.
