The downfall of society

MORNING THOUGHTS      

 

Random thoughts, incomplete sentences,

thus is my morning being. 

Mind functioning at its highest level, or perhaps at its lowest —

I’m not sure.

Is it paranoia or an acute sense of my environment

that opens the windows of my imagination

and the door to visions of things to be?

 

Those who see only that which they choose,

forsaking the reality that has been placed before them,

build their castles upon a foundation of faith

and proclaim their faith to be a virtue.

 

They are led willingly to the slaughter

with banners unfurled and songs of praise.

“Glory to God” is their cry.

Patriotism is their justification

as false prophets beat cadence to the march.

 

They bid you welcome unto their journey

into the jaws of pestilence, famine, war and death.

And the shadow of darkness they cast

falls upon us.

 

Bless them, Lord, for they know not.

Forgive them, Lord, for I cannot.

Interesting write- the morning seems a good time to toss around in our heads how we wish the world to be or not be. The sad part is that most people see only what they choose, needing to be in a party or group that they let define them. Reality changes from where we stand and from what are beliefs are, and so one person might not share the same "reality" as another. Within any faith, there will always be those who take it to the extreme and demand the rest of the world follow their way of thinking, just like in politics. It's true that extremism makes it hard to forgive people, and this thought-provoking write is well-said.
