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
A rising selfish generation of people have been
dehumanized by the media and made animistic
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
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.
