A more serious poem. Some thoughts on fear.
False Fear

We war within and with each other
Driven on by fear,
we kill our brother
and Fear is false,
it is not real
but we reify,
and people die

The lens is cracked
That we peer through
and it informs
these THINGS we do

We war inside,
and with our brother
Fueled by fear,
we kill each other!
Fear is a lie,
but we make it real
From hate comes action
a fatal reaction..

The lens is shattered!
A distorted view
and it determines
these things we do..

We war within
and with each other
We wonder why we hate our brother
This fear is false,
it is not real
but we reify..
and the innocent die.
