Witness the Unraveling of Humanity…
Bare witness to the travesty,
the unfolding nightmare,
and know that you and I,
far removed from intent,
are just as culpable,
by relenting on our hopes.
What destruction needs,
what pain cries out,
is for a recognition that we are wrong,
in every view and acceptance thrown to flames,
just to uphold our delusions
of how we want life to be.
We blame the terrorists,
we blame religions and philosophy,
for all our disregard for one another,
when we judge so harshly,
we compete so fiercely
to be better than someone else.
Yet we have let go the ties
that bind us as humanity,
not one color, not one language,
not one culture or belief,
we are so diverse in nature’s keep.
And hopes for us have all faded,
relenting for our selfish goals,
and tethers broken between us
see us isolated
and our collective voices sold.
Survival is now in question,
as we allow our world to fade,
taken by all those lost souls,
who by belief just segregate,
and keep us confused and dazed.
