  • breathing

    breathing but not inhaling
    living but not prevailing
    and ailing resurgence of history repeated
    and though we may feel defeated
    humanity needs it to learn and hopefully come out better
    at the least
    to unify towards a lesser evil
    because the true downfall of us as people
    is that we misrepresent each other
    and the prominent figures
    are in upheaval of their moral fortitude
    that is a prelude to greed
    the catalytic seed of all sins
    gluttony lust vanity envy
    and the three others
    but i won’t say them all
    because don’t want to feel them next to me

        WOW! I have read this many times. You have captured remarkable depth. Your verse stimulates many philosophical musing. I love " greed, the catalytic seed of all sin."

        Thank you

          Wise words, Xom, and I like the way you end it - not wanting to feel the named sins next to you.

            A bunch of well placed rhymes hidden in this gem of an admonition, Xom!
