When I see people in the streets screaming at each other for the raw meat of peoples wounded bodies trampled on by old prophesies and legacies of traditions that ought to have died long ago, I die inside.
When I see misunderstanding and ignorance etched in people’s mouths their cavities spilling out words of catch all the hate spit fire and shit, I die inside.
When I watch the rights of women and children and men and animals and the earth and the world and ourselves get stripped away left and right by a world that doesn’t quite even understand what it is saying, I die inside.
Because in this world there is a constructed fallacy of hatred that we cannot begin to see the end of because if we followed the root of our fears and our hatred we would be pained to see it is only ignorance and selfishness that promotes these inside ourselves
If we traveled back in time to understand the history of our own provocations we may see that in essence the only thing to fear is fear itself the only thing to hate is hate itself and the only thing to love is everything.
If we understood the love inside ourselves that has been convoluted and mutilated into the hatred of our actions and our words into the posters reading fag and slut into the politicians telling women they rape oh so easy and into the world shouting at a black president that voting him in was racist…. We might just die inside.
If we could understand the true consequences of our rhetoric and our intertwined fears we might have to face the beauty and the glaring shine of the love that a human being can offer… and then what?
We know how to hate and how to fight
we know how to shed the blood of innocent children and how to force a rifle into a womans womb and pull the trigger
we know how to take turns spilling semen into the gap between a things forcefully spread knees and
we know how to disregard a woman’s resistance and cries
we know how to disrespect and disregard a woman’s right to choose what inhabits her crying insides
we know how to shoot at the enemy even when seeing the whites of another human beings eyes
we know how to kill and murder and maim
We know how to hack apart people limb from limb,
We know how to work them to death and then kill them with a single shot to the brain when they are no longer useful,
We know how to torture and hypocritise while spitting in each other’s eyes telling the other side we won’t apologize
We know how to turn people into politics turn people into symbols and ideologies rather than the lives that they lead and then
We know how to kill and maim them to paint them all the same because they are all of the same tiny strip of land that has somehow become more important the cohabitiation
We know how to distinguish and categorize until we split the identity of ourselves and people into so many lines they are at eternal war with themselves
We know how to disregard the mistakes of our past to never negotiate with “outright lies”
we know how to spend women and children like currency and use them to our own gain,
we know how to tell a person that what they are is wrong and what they are is a fag a dyke a retard a he/she a nigger a beaner a cunt or a chink.
We know how to hurt others we don’t understand and abuse those we chose not to know
We know how to call others personal lives a sin and then riddle the world with bullet holes in a crowded theatre with screaming people
We know how to beat a person to death after taking them home and screwing them simply because they used to own the same fleshlike lump below that we do
We know how to tear peoples children away from them because the world has rejected their way of living and how to think of them as less than alive
We know how to take a person’s life and somehow make it an abominable sin that tradition and treachery has taught us to extinguish
We know how to burn fellow living beings with lives and families and desires and goals and dreams and ambitions we know how to burn them alive as they scream for help and we just sit and laugh
We know how to fault half the population while sitting on a pedestal and allowing them to drown in a harsh society we create and propogate
We know how to disregard a living breathing moving walking being as less than alive and then somehow
We know how to launch a bullet into someone’s moving flesh, how to stab a persons life to pieces and empty another of their life force
We don’t dehumanize or villainize we know how to simply act
Somehow we don’t consider it murder and rape and assault and battery or abuse because somehow we have the good fortune to be the only living thing on this earth that can look at a person an animal a world and call it a thing to demolish not a living contributing organism that we have desecrated and murdered.
So if we know all these things
If we know how to be less than alive and treat others as they are the same
Where do we go from there? If we realize the glaring beauty of the living condition and all the amazing results of this breathing world where do we go from our decrepit position?
Nobody knows, and so the cycle goes.
