A people filled with nothing but aggression;
What I’ll never understand at all,
Is hating the innocent with a passion.
On help from the heavens do we call.
From people we treated as equal I expected much more,
Pointless violence seen as nothing wrong
Is it lack of a conscience, insanity or religion?
The only result is destruction from such a vision;
To view violence as a solution, is only an idiots illusion.
Instead of forward it seems backwards are we going,
The same oppression we fought against,
Is now what amongst each other we’re showing;
So many people just won’t grow,
It’s not like we haven’t been here before
Taking up against each other a weapon,
But it seems like no one really learnt the lesson.
A poem dedicated to the current events going on in South Africa. There is no justification enough for causing harm or taking a human life. Don’t we all just want peace and a means to survive. Life is a gift and it’s priceless. XENOPHOBIA HAS NO ROOM IN OUR WORLD!
