All eyes passing judgment seeing no truth
Even images of ourselves are tainted with untruth 
Seeing what we feel and not who we are 
Epidemics ravage our communities like biblical plagues 
Prophesy fulfilled in our last days
And of  all the impurity, beauty of truth resides in our children 
The children we raise to perpetuate hate, 
the children starving and those being raped
There is no limit to our means of reaching self destruction 
Slavery translated into incarceration, robbing all people, 
stealing away a generation of great thinkers; innovators  
Anger and rage, caged as if to be domesticated, 
but it is what it is, unable to exist in true harmony with man 
Without understanding- so lost-we choose this way to live our lifetime
