Despair, but be aware -
Some people profit from destruction,
some benefit from war,
poverty makes other's rich,
sickness, another's bounty,
and waste in one's eyes is another's bread.
When we fight against external circumstances
things never change,
foes to be reckoned with are not distant or 'out there,'
But found inside, so close,
as the multifaceted director of one's
Blocking our own drum, we cannot wisely listen to others,
and too often follow leadership with destructive qualities,
and love with toxic ends.
