Volatile Humanity, A Poem By Eddie Myles, Jr.
You talk of peace, I profess my love
They wage their wars in names above
There might be truth but we hear only lies
Shiny eyes are a great disguise
To save the world to make us win
Lets both solve - the world’s problems
But we can’t because we don’t really care
And you and I, we aren’t really here
Given breath - and life and thought
To each his own, that’s what we’re taught
And every man’s brutality,
Evince a volatile humanity
Do we feel? And, do we love?
And is my force from up above?
We rise in times of charity
We kill with such great clarity
You claim to know me - but I’m different now
I used to be him, now I disavow
My juvenile hypocrisy
My blatant and volatile humanity
