We will perish, no doubt, in time
Brought about by war
Nobody will write about our survival in history books
Because there won’t be anymore life
On this earth
Which we destroyed in broad daylight.
No Trojan horse of treachery
we cultivated the place we now call home
A world where our children live in fear
and we blame our tragedies
on everyone else.
Are you surprised? Caught off guard
When all of us had a hand in our downfall.
Who am I to place blame on my brothers and sisters
When I have turned my back on family
In the name of religion, race, or sex?
So if you are sleeping with one eye open, know that is our own doing
and we cannot go back.
We cannot repent.
We are far from being absolved of our collective sins
Reversed progress as a species
With our hubris.
