this system is killing me

I am human

Most developed of
all life forms

But alas

Still flesh and
blood

As far as humans go

I'm even more
intelligent than
most

More loving than
most

But this system I
cannot transcend

This system is not
as intelligent as we
can be

A system based on
profit disease and
war

Is not as
intelligent as we
can be

This system is
killing me

Most intelligent
life form of the
most intelligent
species

This system is
killing me

This system is
killing me.

    Who created the system? Who can change the system? Look in the mirror
