Abnegate

I don’t want love
I don’t want pain
I don’t want happiness, joy, or sorrows

I don’t want suffering
I don’t want pleasure
I don’t want solitude, compassion, or sympathy

I don’t want friends
I don’t want enemies
I don’t want peace
I don’t want chaos
I don’t want light
I don’t want dark

I don’t want wisdom
I don’t want ignorance
I don’t want stress, worries, or cares
I don’t want fear
I don’t want courage
I don’t want dreams, hopes, or desires

I don’t want now
I don’t want then
I don’t want truth
I don’t want fiction
I don’t want memories
I don’t want thoughts
I don’t want lust
I don’t want neglect
I don’t want emptiness
I don’t want fulfillment
I don’t want strength, weakness, or apathy

I don’t want help
I don’t want advice
I don’t want kindness, hatred, or deception

I don’t want this
I don’t want that
I don’t want you
And I don’t want me.
