the roller coaster of existence

Knowledge increases, but what did it change?
I might look different upon what happens, but it happens anyway.
I might have the choice of action, but instead i still re-act.
Perhaps my reaction is different now, but who notices?
Maybe the choice is between two lesser evils, but which is lesser than the other?
However, knowing this, it hurts more than before.
I stopped being not-responsible, and the world did appear even more empty to me.
What’s the point? Is there a point?
Who cares? Is there anything to care about?
Is there anything?
Why am i me, and not you?
What am i but disconnected from All.
If compassion derives from ‘all is one’,
why do i then feel so alone?
