Yes, I know that many will say, "Oh but there's so much good to be found in the world, so many kind and decent people." Yes, but are they actually making a difference? Convince me. Please.

Artist: Chris Holden
ghosts of the living
destruction/creation may be the same force,
but how to step beyond it all and rise above
our defective nature?
perhaps this human condition is that duality,
and keeps us in the hell we attempt to relegate
to an afterlife.
atrocity is a vision,
a philosophy enjoined
with human ghosts
of the living.
