We keep covering our faces with masks because we dont want to risk getting infected by inhalation But we keep contaminating our lungs daily by inhaling that tobacco smoke from cigarettes We wash our hands with sanitizer carefully to kill the germs and bacteria present But we keep drinking alcohol every weekend intoxicating ourselves and killing our liver We keep paying that tithe to the church every sunday while they live in mansions and drive luxury vehicles But they do nothing about the hundreds of homeless, hungry and poor people living right in the heart of their cities We keep our families close to our heart because that's where we learned how to love But sometimes it is your brother who is preventing your success with a knife stuck in your back
