"Don't You Ever Disrespect the $&^%ing Caterpillar"

Updated on February 5, 2019

Humbleness. We’re missing humbleness. I see it too much these days: people trying to show-off their one thing, or another. What You got? Or what are You chasing? A big bank account, a bigger car? Another house, cottage, boat? Sigh. How many shiny pebbles do we need to make us happy? Then, we can pigeon ourselves around our friends showing-off our achievement and success in acquiring possessions.

Success. There is so much talk about success that I can easily throw-up the next time I hear someone talk about quarterly profits and success. How much profit did You clear this year? Did You exceed expectations? Are your stocks up? So much focus is on the rat-race that anyone who does not partake in the game is seen as a non-conformist, or perhaps just simply as a lazy individual.

I cook for homeless people. I do it for free, out of my own volition. Often I am asked what I cooked that day and when I mention what I made, sometimes I get snarky remarks, as if homeless people do not deserve to eat chicken, or fish, or three meals a day. They’re homeless. They don’t work. They don’t provide anything. How come they get to eat things like that?

What am I supposed to do? Cook tree-bark soup for them because somehow homeless people are not worth decent food? Who decides who is worth eating what? Are our meals somehow dependent on our levels of achievements? Why is this even in our subconscious? What, are we still cavemen? This is honestly frustrating.

We cannot judge others depending on their possessions, or on who’s got the bigger house, the better paying job, or more expensive jewelry. Why do I even have to write about this? For … sake!! Haha!! It’s like a bad dream. We’re in 2019 and I have to talk about manners, respect, decency and morality. Like, what have we been doing for the last few thousand years? Why do I still have to talk about this? Someone please enlighten me.

There’s nothing I can say to You that is realer, Remember when You praisin’ the butterfly, Don’t You ever disrespect the fucking caterpillar” – Royce da 5”9, “Caterpillar”.
