Fallibility

I can’t understand how people do what they do.
Acting as though they are not thinking it through.

Why are we so uncaring while living?
We don’t even share, much more, giving.

Can’t we see we need each other?
Not to hurt and kill our brother.

How do we expound our acts of violence?
Does it not show our lack of conscience?

We act like we are the ones who own,
While in truth, our life’s a loan.

In this world we walk temporarily,
For us to understand what is frailty.

When is the last time we stop and stare?
To look and think if all things are fair?

Do we have the courage to change the world?
Or will our eyes stay forever blurred?

It’s the time to take up courage and walk straight.
Before we wake up and realize it’s too late.
