“Caught Thoughts Upon Present Perusal”
Situational, yes, how selective and unfixed!
Arbitrary decisions leave blood soon mixed.
We cannot ascertain what ought to be from what is.
“Impersonal chance has formed all and we see this.”
One woud not hear such lies
From someone who daily dies.
The drift shall lead to a time when they shall burn
If the blind leading the blind choose not to return.
How many choices have left so many innocents dead?
How many cowards refuse to lift their hands and head?
What darkness descended overnight!
Horror out of mind but in plain sight!
The vehicles of force used upon the unsuspecting
Have left deep scars upon those who are infecting
So many, gone down the road to eternal hell.
Is there an end; if time can’t then who can tell?
Many silent trumpets and slumbering heralds –
Such neglect shall bring undesired rewards.
There comes a time when it becomes too late
To wake the sleeping from their present state.
Oh, conscientious objections and stated dissents!
Forsaken duty allows tyrant hands to kill innocents.
Committed to the cause, salt and light for progress,
Reversing effects, state problems and then address.
Through mechanistic eyes, one sees the world as one blind,
And in this great long war the battleground is in the mind.
Fools push the truths aside to the category of fairy tales
Not seeing that in the end such action in no way avails.
When presented perception of things isn’t based upon facts,
Misinformed individuals are led to commit many foolish acts.
Colder now compassion grows as the storm spreads through the lands
And our dying humanness exhales pained breaths, left in death’s hands.
