What comes from your lips but condemnation?
Accusation, half-baked assumption?
For your words are of no worth to she
Whose dreams are full of what could be and
what should have

You who judges thoughtlessly
with ease. So very carelessly
scream slurs that sneak and masquerade
as sighs of "sorry" and "don't worry."

On what earth do you live
and what world do you see,
where your sin tells her sin it does not fit in?
Where your scar tells her scar it's uglier by far?

The fruit of ignorance is intolerance
We're a catastrophic generation
of a metaphorical "mass de-globalization"
Running backwards from lack of understanding
Bred from lack of wanting to,
bred from lack of trying.

Compassion is artillery
Humanity's a shield.
Love's a cure 
and scowls are fewer
when we stop and THINK
to change the way we are.

    I really like what is being said here. 'We're a catastrophic generation of a metaphorical "mass de-globalization"-love this line....running backwards from lack of understanding>>this is so true. People believe that we are understanding more and more with all of our scientific/philosophical advancements, but we are still running backwards. Great write.
