Humanity.

Humanity roams through streets of insanity.

A billion souls with mortal sins and fatal flaws

wander the earth with their imperfections,

in search of acceptance in a world misled

by distractions of our petty human reactions.

 

Our sense of humanity screams contradictions

and fallacies as we let our baser instincts lead.

We apply labels, and brand people based on

their short comings no matter the cost.

Innocent people are oppressed by unscrupulous

people who abuse power and humiliate without

impunity. Shamed and cast out like they never

mattered. Their voices are silenced by resignation.

Highly developed countries make profit out of

the plight of poorer countries with marinated

charity stories sold by the highest bidder in a

world filled with artificial borders dividing the

poorest countries from prosperity.

A world where evil wears the masks of charity,

fairness, democracy and kindness but

promotes the oppression of women and

children, thrives on injustices and feeds off

mass incarceration and police brutality.

 

 

Violence is the blooming flower of humanity

and fills the earth.

Religion is opium to the masses and faith has

bred waves of animosity and human consciousness

is not stamped for approval.

Man is divided and there is an insatiable hunger

for power.

A rising selfish generation of people have been

dehumanized by the media and made animistic

by power.

Cavemen on social media bred by raw sadistic

hatred are constantly ripping each other apart

with insensitivity, ignorance and stupidity.

Quick to justify bad behavior, spread hate, live

off injustices and hide behind masks of vanity in

a world where conceptual paper is more

important than actual living souls.

 

Humanity is tangled around societal noise

that is embroidered in baseless stereotypes,

racial profiling, hate and segregation based on

sexuality, and religious intolerance leading to

extremism.

Simple profundities are discouraged, and

profound simplicity is ignored in a

perceptive world that thrives on tainted lies

and baseless judgments.

 

I am just another human disfigured by the

modern world, sharing this fragile planet

with many souls.

Complacent with the small world around me

even if it makes me unhappy.

Socially caged and rubbing my eyes in the

presence of smog filled skies.

Walking around with a stone face, feigning

happiness in a self centered world where

people don’t care about anything or anyone

unless it’s directly affecting them.

A world where everyone is looking for his

own and “survival for the fittest” rules.

Author: AfroetryC

I am an African woman and a mother to a precious little angel. I love to use the term "Afro-floetic Queen" mostly to describe my poetry and my roots. I love poetry...art, soul music and inspirational bits of knowledge to offer advice and counseling to those who need it. I can be very witty, straight forward but fun. Ha. ha... A colorful perception of the world - expressed in my poetry. I want to inspire people with my Poetry...give them hope, while also advising them. Life is a learning process and i am happy when one of my pieces directly affects or inspires one of my readers. Let's take a detour around experience, and let me fill your minds with sweet poetic juices.... Note: Just changed my user name from FloetryC to AfroetryC because the latter is more personal and describes my Spoken Word Poetry better.
