*trying - Poem by Jim Norausky

I don't give a damn first order

as events sweep around the world

as long as my family survives.

Then I'll help in any way possible

for we are family of mankind

in humanity's album

with each snapshot

impressed on our soul

begging for relief saying

help me.

    The one constant with humanity is that it will not help itself. It stands by and watches the Earth die around it. Politicians are motivated to help only by greed, the church preaches peace and love, rarely practicing what they preach. You raise valid points here, Jim. Unfortunately, I got no answers.
