Human Nature

Faith shattering,
sending
rippling
effects

Through Earth
it leaves shudders
like earthquakes
in our moral bones

We pray
We cry
We turn away

From problems The World can’t fix
problems
amplified through time– sixty years
of discourse

fall Silent on
Selective Ears
too afraid
to let go of privilege.

Helpless
and oceans apart
we cannot help

We cannot sleep

Our universal heart pounds to the sound
of
angry people being angry at angry people being angry at

We Sit in our seats
so Far away, so detached from problems
Reading
about foreign wars that course through our veins
like poison
straight to the brain,
We watch as hope starts to slip away

with our race
Racing to kill itself off, racing
to blame each
other racing to Hate and Kill and kill
and Kill and kill and kill and
Stop.

Take a deep breath.

There’s still air
the morning after.

There’s Still air
too Thick to Breathe.

lungs Filled with Blood –
there’s still Air –
breathing Too Loud –
There’s StiLl air
gurglinG tHrough Mud
We Can’T IgNore The ChoKIng
screams
