You keep your head down and follow the footsteps.
Those feet imprinting themselves in mud, all of your vision.
As you walk slowly in line. Head down.
The world blurs itself in peripheral vision.
As do the guns and uniforms.
And the words and the stories.
Spoken in hushed voices.
Keeping you in line.
As you slowly walk.
But some day,
Some day you’re going to want to look up.
Some day you’re going to want to get shot.
Some day, you’ll be bits of brain and blood in mud.
You’ll be the easel.
The brush plucked from your skin.
Dipped back in your lifeless body.
Making paintings in someone else’s peripheral vision.
You weren’t meant for lines.
Lines weren’t meant for you.
And there you’ll be lying.
Dead, perhaps. Lifeless, never.
This question might trigger /instigate thoughts of every individual? Aren’t we ?
The answer is NO. Belonging to a race called humans and coming from different cultural and social backgrounds, have we as humans tended to evolve ourselves more perfectly? Indeed not, the race has moved far away from the definition of being humane.
What have we done to our society, this world and universe? Forget about animals, we cannot live in peace with each other.
How shall we stop this growing inhumaneness?
“The abandoned kin of mankind
stray on deserted roads and wealthy jungles
wolves concealed under the sheepskin,
buy their integrity
in exchange for shelter
what curse befalls on the humans…
Can thou see!
Die they in thousands ,
in wars, blasts and homicide
culpable in every way…
in ashes of dead
live thousand wishes and aspirations
burn in rage ,
the abandoned and bereft
destitute of nature”
