Blind To Humanity


Some people
don't care who they hurt
they live their lives
with no humanity behind their eyes

They walk around
blind to everything
but themselves

    Sensitive Insight is as necessary as sight and if we lack it we are blind despite having eyes...and we mostly play blind! (Report) Reply

    Totally agree with you, have met some of them myself. Not only do they not have humanity behind their eyes, but none in their souls either. Ones I've met are very emotional and into themselves because of their pasts, yet are cold and heartless to others. Then I have many in my life who are compassionate, caring, full of life and are attuned to others, doing what they can for people, especially those in need. Good, kind people. Thank you for sharing.

    Brief but with a powerful message, we are emotionally blind sans any sensitivities. (Report) Reply

    And so we are able to distinguish the others. Dave, this world teaches and we learn from it. Let this tribe be there as none can crush them for ever. (Report) Reply

    So true! Some people can think only of themselves! Unfortunately, they out number people who are genuinely humane! ! A poem true to the core! (Report) Reply

    to much ego sometimes. But I have found in this group of poets, everyone is so kind and encouraging each other. And that is what it is all about. nice read (Report) Reply

    Very true Dave, but I have experienced much humanity here on PH since losing my husband. Perhaps poetry and humanity go hand in hand. (Report) Reply

I Speak Not, I Trace...
