Human nature

a contusion licked unholy

by tongues of greed 

a shimmering sunrise

plagued by clouds, overinflated

ocean of infinite need

spilled forth in censored words

a red satin ribbon

woven through a steel chain

 

Human nature

stunningly beautiful

in its

suffering 

 

Our wounds build our strength

Our selfishness teaches compassion

Our fears summon unity

Our hate transgresses into love, unordained

  1. Strange how human nature can be portrayed as having these two very different faces, even stranger why do we sometimes choose the more brutal face instead of the loving and compassionate face. I wish I knew the answer to that one 🙂
