Fighting instead of betterment…
Too much is rarely said,
as if in fear of tomorrow we must be fed,
and greed has become the foundation
of how we deal with life,
always getting our fill for fear it will disappear
despite the abundance.
Has competition destroyed us,
kept us fighting one-another
instead of bettering ourselves,
instead of pursuits in the name of right,
not in spite of our neighbors,
to feel superior?
Instead of quantifying winners and losers,
perhaps it would be better to teach our children
to better themselves,
to become an asset to humanity,
not a rivalry by comparison,
or in judgement of state.
‘Dog eat dog’ is a heinous paradigm,
creating contention and superiority to find,
and the more we believe in such negativity,
so shall it rule our lives,
and doubt within us will rise to temper our wants,
to keep us fighting, instead of living.
