Trapped Humanity

Exert from my poetry book, Perfectly Flawed.

Outside,  the sun is shining brightly, but within
The window, where the air is stale from fear of pain
Everyone seems to be hiding behind squares of glass
Letting life pass them by as their isolation presses
Down on their sanity, and cabin fever rises.

Reflection

Chaos is all around us. We woke up on a winter morn last February to the knowledge the the virus has spread. Today, almost a year later, we are under yet another lockdown that has even harsher penalties.

What’s the world coming to? A vitus, I can understand, a volcano, flood, earthquake, fire even, all can be analyzed and man’s ingenuity comes into play, and saves the day.

However, when a political figure insites violence, and approves of bigotry/ racism, in this day and age is unacceptable. Why do we, as people, feel the need to follow where we lead? Shouldn’t we have achieved enough awareness of the world around us to notice that races exist, but they have a common denominator: humanity, red blood, and emotions.

Don’t let yourself be swept away by what the speeches that demean anyone, and promote violence against them. Rather highlight the importance of inclusion, acceptance, and friendship. In so doing, you are providing others with a role model that is human, perhaps fallible, but at least, a person you can speak to, listen to, argue with …. in a civilized manner.
