Now the Hard Part

I been gettin Disheartened lately. There dang be a great pile o’ shit in the world to clean up, and sittin on the internet lookin at it instead of doing like fuckin anything sure aint helping. Thing is, I can’t claim to be on the right side. The sides don’t exist. The lines on the map and the graphs showing which way our politics point at are all just pretty pictures we drew because humans are lost and scared little idiots lookin for something to cling to to make them feel like the good guy.

I gotta believe that at our core we all are good. I gotta believe that humans get scared, lose their way and themselves. I have to believe this is not going to work if some people get crushed for some to get their heads above the filth. I have to believe this because an evil person is not something I can understand. I can understand getting lost, going so far down a hole that you can’t see the way out. I can’t understand evil, and it scares the shit out of me.

What comes next is going to be fucking hard. We are going to have to take our insides out, spread them on the floor and see what is ours and what is killing us. There is no escaping this. Left and right, right and wrong we have to go through ourselves piece by piece and figure out what is wrong with us. Because we are still us, we all share humanity, regardless of our hate, regardless of our distance, and its never going to work if anyone gets left behind.

 

Pieces

 

How did we get hurt so bad

 

We are blown apart

 

Our guts are on the floor

 

Our hearts are torn

 

And we cling to our fear

 

As it shreds us

 

We drown

 

With those we hold under

 

And we have fallen

 

With those we have pushed over the edge

 

We have left the windows open for the dark

 

We have let the cold in

 

 

Pick up your body parts

 

Do not be afraid to scream

 

For you are needed

 

Every last piece

 

Forget what was lost

 

And do not scramble for what is left

 

Man is more than this

 

Our souls are needed now

 

A nightmare

 

Can become a dream

 

And we can wake from this hell

 

Whole again
