'... to such men the desperate and horrible thought has come that perhaps the whole of human life is but a bad joke, a violent and ill-fated abortion of the primal mother, a savage and dismal catastrophe of nature. To them, too, however, the other thought has come that man is perhaps not merely a half-rational animal but a child of the gods and destined to immortality.'

- Hermann Hesse, Steppenwolf

'I will not serve that in which I no longer believe whether it call itself my home, my fatherland or my church: and I will try to express myself in some mode of life or art as freely as I can and as wholly as I can, using for my defence the only arms I allow myself to use - silence, exile, and cunning.'

- James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

Actually, the title for this came from the book Red Dwarf where the psychiatrist is trying to convince the hologram that he's really gone, and not real. But the computer makes him think he's thinking, therefor he possibly is. doesnt fit the poem really..

Suicide Is Painless by Lucid Obscurity reviews

We are so similar to each other because our ailments are the same... Awkwardness is contagious, but so is empathy. Something of a quiet realisation. Oh, and the title just seemed to fit.
