it is what it is

It what it is? How can it be what it is? These are humans, These are living beings, Just like you and me! How would you like it? if you were the ones. You were the ones that were facing all the sins that you do against a fellow brother Yes they are your brother Yes they are sins Your father, God!! We are His children We are all brothers and sisters of one Father That’s your brother That’s your brother that you torture That’s your brother that you sell You cause pain and suffering You are immoral You torture You stab You beat Thousand and thousand times Over and over again With no absolute remorse That's the sin of your hands and foot But your eyes they sin the most The watch you do all that And they watch you Without a single blink why won't you blink you enjoy it you enjoy every bit of it you enjoy yourself As you cause pain beyond belief, Harm beyond belief, torture beyond belief. Beyond belief! Absolutely beyond belief! Because no words are strong enough to carry the pain you cause Not to an animal Not to a toy But to your own brother and sister If you think you tape their mouths not to hear their screams, I promise you they will follow you for eternity. Each life you take Every pain you cause Will follow you till judgment day It's a sad world A sad world indeed Because you think you could get away with it You are getting away it Just like many others before you Just like many others now If the Rohingya people in Myanmar are being massacred and fleeing, With a pope visit, That spoke about peace without mentioning the massacre Surely, if I was you I would think I could get away with it. Perhaps, you might. Don't be too sure because no one gets away with anything on judgment day Each of you will pay All sins will be accounted It is NOT what it is !!!

This is the reality, we have to pay for all of our sins, everything whatever we did,we have to pay, we all are sons of Adams so we all are brothers and sisters, and it s really sad that the massacre wasn t mentioned, good luck and continue to write

How sad the pope did not mention the Rohingya people by name.. That is so sad that a man of his influence would ignore them... Although it is not the Christians causing the genocide.. Great post Antonia..

yes, Christians aren't causing it but they have a great influence worldwide and can help them, can end it! sadly no one is doing anything, not enough media coverage just people saying "oh no it is an outrage" it is but they are not outraged to do anything. thank you for reading :)
