If a Were a Robot

If I were a robot

If I were a robot I would be stoic. I wouldn’t react or get angry. I would only say things I meant to say because I was programmed to do that.

If I were a robot I would clean my house on a regular schedule because robots are organized like that.

As a robot I could observe feels but not feel them. I don’t want to feel; feelings are exhausting.

If I were a robot I would never be tired. I could help people without feeling tired or resentful.

Being a robot I could multitask without my brain exploding. I want that.

If I were I a robot I wouldn’t give a shit about how I looked.

If I were a robot I could just go on and never have to cry.

Most importantly- If I were a robot I would always make a calculated well-thought out decision (without emotions getting involved) about relationships and friendships.

Why can’t I be a robot?
