Soul Cannibalism



One day my reality was harshly changed. It's like my mind was awoken and I learned to see things for what they really are. We have no excuses for this cold world. There's more then enough to go around to everyone. Why is there a single child starving? We have groceries loaded in dumpsters in our country alone to feed so many. We have buildings built with real gold filled with crooks. While a homeless veteran sleeps down the street. We have lazy Americans living off food stamps, housing and child support. Watching other countries suffer with no food or medicare. What is wrong with us? Humans hating on other humans. People killing people. Parents killing there own babies. Sounds like some type of soul cannibalism. Our world is full of so much evil.
I have this crazy dream of peace. Good can shine on us all brighter. Where we can all come to an understanding. Lightness does not need to drive out darkness, for love conquers all. If we could all unite and let our pride fall together. Help one another instead of criticize. Feel the pain in our hearts for every child, every soul including our self. Feel to feel and let things go. What a better world we could all make. If only we could all love up. Together we could be the change, we have all been praying for.

    These are great words. The world is quite a terrifying place. But like you said, " Together we could be the change we have all been praying for."
