What scares me the most

What scares me the most? The sheer tranquility one possesses while taking an innocent's life. How their hearts don't quiver or hands don't shiver while they cut through the throats of so many. One life lost,ten families destroyed. What kind of barbarity is this in which they take pride. Somewhere someone's reality is this, How sleepy one' conscience should get to ignore this cruelty. Women tortured,men beheaded. Girls sold ,boys brainwashed. A generation killed , a bright future lost. The lies they tell, the stories they make, the false promises they give. A facade ineffective in hiding what's beneath. Yet nothing can be done for the one's whose lives are at stake. Wives raped, daughters enslaved, Millions of dreams destroyed. Just a difference of boundary decides your future. What if these boundaries were blurred? What if all that mattered was humanity? I know I am asking for something impossible, Yet it's not something that's unthinkable. What scares me the most? Humankind
