A brief description of a civilization.
We are...

a species of savages.
a species made for war.
a species made of executioners.

fearful of other species.
fearful of losing to others.
fearful of loving.

afraid of living.
afraid of dying.
afraid of growing.

a species afraid of itself.
a species unsure of itself.
a species without the will to walk forward.

a species that is constantly looking for help.
a species that is continually changing.
a species that does evolve with each year that passes.

as we have always been.
as loving and compassionate as the rising sun.
as honorable and noble as a defiant mountain.
