When Shall We Learn
Blood stains in place of tears,
Back and forth words stab like knives,
Dizzy and losing touch of reality,
Will we ever see the truth for what it is?
Basking away in toxic traits,
Justifying them to get on with our days,
Transfixed in the idea that we are deserving of it all anyways.
When did we end up this way?
Where did we lose sight of ourselves so much that we instead started to hate?
To battle till purple and blue,
Till blood spews from the slicing of words,
And the venom poisons our souls yet again.
