The Apology

May 23, 2023

Everyone deserves

But none will receive

Via a parental confession

“I didn’t ask to
Be here.
Someone created me.

Yes, I know that’s a selfish thing.
It’s a selfish thing.

But you know what?
I’ve cared about other stuff,
And, yeah, me not caring about stuff
Will, affect it as much
As me caring about stuff
Which is

– Doug Stanhope

The Apology

Our dearest offspring

It is with abysmal sadness

And our deepest regret

That we created you

Without your consent

We barely knew where

Children came from

Let alone prepare

To even have one

Or two or three or

Either side of twenty-one

We lied to you about

There being a God

Indoctrinated you into

Believing in Santa Claus

A twisted assumption

For a life of consumption

It is cliche to say

We did the best we could

Just adding more brood

For being in the mood

When we heard that

Your truths were clear

We acted as if

We didn’t hear

All we did is

What we learned

Doing the same

To you in return

Repeating with clarity

The definition of insanity

Consider an alternative

Had you had real parents

Lovingly guiding you to

Understand your divine spark

That you are entirely a

Manifestation of miracles

From inception to gestation

Run by a power source

Without any wires

Inhaling and exhaling

As if by magical means

Hearing silence through symphonies

Through three tiny bones

An offspring of Gaia consciousness

Participating on a playground

Of particles and waves

Engaging in thought as reality

And reality as a thought

Traveling through the cosmos

On a spherical mother ship

To experience a full life

Full of love, laughter and truth

Speaking a universal language

With query and compassion

Evolving towards harmony

Balancing with nature

Understanding the yin and yang

Of our anthropomorphic illusion

With other sentient beings

“If my parents were alive today I would sue them into poverty just for having me against my will.”

– Doug Stanhope

I owe no one any apologies. I can live with that.

“I write to expunge the darkness so
That someday light may shine through”

– Angelo Devlin
