There are none so blind as those who will not see,
None so dead as those who will not hear,
None so cowardly as those who are silent spectators.
There’s no injustice greater than when the ones in power misuse it,
No shame greater than blaming the victim and protecting the criminals.
This is what the world has come to.
Justice is seldom served at the right time,
Nobility, kindness, and generosity are all but forgotten.
Will there be a change for the better?
Will there be an end to all the terrible injustices?
Life can be extremely unfair.
The world, too.
The thin ray of hope seems to flicker at times.
Let’s try to keep the flames of hope burning;
Brighter and stronger with each passing day,
In spite of all that’s threatening to sniff it out!
Let’s be the growing exceptions,
In a world that’s slowly turning more evil!
Let’s do our best to ensure that everything isn’t lost.
Let’s keep fighting…
Even when it seems as if all is lost!
Let’s hope and strive to be better tomorrow!
This was something that I fished out of my draft folder today. I had started this post many years ago but I just couldn’t complete it until now.
