As we fight for justice, peace becomes compromised in many ways.
An overheated engine
Fueled by a head full of steam
Brainwashed with politics
The brainchild of discrimination is born
Who can be blamed as peace is undone
as hatred is awakened
Who can be blamed as emotions go raw
as masses go into conflict
When conscience sacrificed its sense of guilt
When voices sacrificed its sincerity
When the soul sacrificed its kindness and beauty
There have been many news and reports of gunshots,
bombings, videos of discrimination and mockery of
groups over another. Sometimes, even leaders of countries
do so. People a hurt, wounds still raw, crimes yet to be
forgiven and forgotten. And weeks later, another incident
It seems as if the world is devolving into a state of tension.
I pray for the world to put aside an overt sense of justice.
There are many great inspirations amongst us, who we can
look for advice, and see a more well-rounded perspective
before jumping in, blaming and shaming. Let’s do what we can
to keep some peace, before we unravel into chaos.
