At times I come across a soul
so quick to bring me down
I wonder what their story is
and what joy they have found
in superficial conflicts
or actions brought of anger,
how do they think
that will make the world a better
place, for us to live on together?
Hearts closed to the bigger picture
this is how they respond to the suffering
of others, by increasing the fracture
till we’re all just single broken bones
in a human body,
for a collective heart heavy.
Spreading the disease
of jumping to the worst assumptions
about another human heart
without knowing its best intentions.
But love is a doing word
so let’s all keep in mind
that in a world already tough enough
at least we tried being kind.
