Epiphany

I saw a boy who looked like you today and in his face I beheld a revelation: no matter what you have done (the list is long) or how much hate I harbor in my heart (you’d better believe it is a lot) toward you for it you are a human being. You are made of the same atoms as the rest of us with only negligible differences. You are held together by those same half-comprehensible forces as the rest of us. I will always see boys with you in their faces.

Nevertheless, you curbstomped my heart and I fucking hate you.
