Lie To Me

When leaders become violators of human rights

Using their lagging conniving techniques

To manipulate, motivate, and ensorcells

Those who are ignorant or lack intellectual acumens

To lead themselves out of a rut created by our systems

Of economic growth that preside with the material worlds,

We, the people, become their Puppets, thoughtless.

Politicians’ speeches today contain content that uses

Demeaning, derogatory, even vulgar contents

That empower one race or religion over others!

Why, why do we still follow these creatures of dissention?

Why don’t we permit ourselves to be humane and lead to a graduation

Of compassion, empathy, understanding, and humanization

Of our beings? Let us express our beliefs freely,

Without rancor, hate, or division!

Man’s abhorance for what s/he doesn’t acknowledge

As accurate, real, truly verifiable is what is limiting

His progress ethically, for s/he seems to be regressing

Into polytheism and empowering scientific knowledge

Over values that teach humanity not to stay the course

Of being altruistic to their own variety and difference.

The Mind Excavated

Archeologists excavate the ground

To find what was in ancients’ minds. They found

By doing so they expand the mind,

Learn of their tools and ingenuity that they find

Exhilarating, as they observe recurring patterns

In history that we can avoid, if only we learns

That the difficulties of life that they surmounted

Are things that we, in our day, would find hardships

Trying to overcomes.

How do we teach ourselves and our progeny

Understanding that they still do apply today?

To learn from our and others’ experiences, fully.

How do we convince the new generations

That theirs is Not the one and only way that excavates

The mind, finds solutions, and resolves

The impossible.

Unknowingly implementing their ignorance traceable

To their upbringing and entourage, capable

Of imposing restrictions and actions unfavorable

To our survival.

Our perception of race, superiority and inferiority

Are just labels that we impose to understand

That which is incomprehensible for us.

Humanity excavates its center, extracting

The same red blood, emotions, and needs.
