When the world has come and gone, who
is going to ask why?
When your home has burned to ash,
are you going to ask how?
When someone points guns at others
are you going to ask, “Why would you do that?”
When you are wronged and want payback,
are you going to even ask if you should?
Good deeds are well hidden by
those posing good intentions.
Villains can be fabricated
by the ones who want crusade.
Is humanity measured by the individual
or is it by the whole community?
Does one judge when another is inhumane,
or has God already done that?
We use labels on all to
pick out our fights yet,
In the end, we
are all human. What’s the point though?
Is it so much harder to offer
compassion, charity, help
to those when they need it, than
it is to fight amongst us all?
Have we become so self-destructive?
Have we become so selfish?
Have we lost ourselves?
Have we lost the dream?
To dream is to hope, but
what is hope with hate?
to hope for someone to die is
to hope for freedom to end.
Is there someone who hopes
for an end? To bring about the darkness,
To destroy everything just because
they are a cynic and perhaps too sluggish to try?
To be a cynic means
to lose all hope.
To lose all hope, means
to lose the future–to lose all dreams.
If we lose the dream,
then we cannot shape the future.
If we have lost the battle with ourselves,
then we have lost the right to a future.
If we lose our collectiveness,
we have lost all of our humanity.
For one can’t be judged
In the end, hope is humanity,
and that humanity can restore the dream–the future.
