Back To The Topic - Poem by Yoan Konkobo

Surround yourself by those who challenge you to be a better person each and everyday. Don't let the snakes too close, but always know where they're lurking. With that being said let's go...

For most it's a sore topic
Blissful ignorance may not be the solution
Great and heroic deeds
Require great satisfaction
Of those on the receiving
But not all remain happy
Those with evil in their eyes lie in wait
With a malevolent energy burning through their very beings
They can't control it though
Because see
What's evil in our eyes may not be to other people
But murder without provocation
How can anybody see this as just?
Maybe if we had noticed the little boy walking to school everyday
Getting picked on at the bus stop
Not having any friends to sit with at lunch
Instead of getting approached by friendly smiling faces at home
His dad lies in wait with the stench of booze on his lips
With a new weapon every other day
Waiting for an excuse to unleash hell at the slightest mistake
With no friends and ultimately no family
A kid has no option but to turn to that maniacal and sadistic sociopath we hear about on the 6 o clock news
How can we expect every kid raised in these conditions to be strong?
We're only humans and can only be pushed so far before we break
But look
Even those with friends are not free of the clutches of evil
Even those with family aren't always happy
You may be wondering where I'm going with this
My point being we are all humans
We live
We die
Whatever comes in between varies from person to person
Some of us enjoy this time on earth more than others
So let us not impede on others without first knowing what they've been through
