It is with slight trepidation
And a newfound respect for myself that
I bubble up to the surface of the chaos in my brain
And back down to the slimy bottom dregs of poisonous thought.
It is there I find the raping of human souls
Vying for God only knows
For I wither and shake and wonder and break
Into my consciousness to ask
Why are we so hard on each other
Why are we lost in criticism and greed
Why are there disease, war and starvation issues in abundance
Are these issues not completely solvable?
Do we not have the greatest brain pool in history?
Enough, I say.
Open our eyes to enough love.
Open our hearts to enough peace.
We have enough.
We really do.
