Tired — of Ignorance

“The world is a perpetually tragic place, and I’m tired.”

We break people’s spine, then mock them when — they struggle to stand up.
We break people’s spirit, then mock them when the light in their eyes turn off, and — they struggle to survive.
We bind people’s legs, then mock them when — they struggle to move forward.
We create obstacles for others, then we mock their struggles, disrespect their perseverance.
We fail to acknowledge their experiences, challenges, and strength;
While we sit in our own shit and become accustomed to the stink and the mess.
And then we complain when someone else tries to change their narrative, their own damn lives.
Because, if it ain’t your problem,
then “WHO CARES!” — right?
Therefore, let’s act all high and mighty.
Let’s continue to mock others.
And hope and pray that we never fall from our grace,

Karma will be as unkind to us, as we are towards others.
