When We All Know

                            Nascent Dark ~ Philip Brent Harris


Everybody dies
so why do we try
so hard to pretend
we will never end?
Hold tight the ignorant
insanity of youth,
when we all know the truth?

This is not meant
to cry false sentiment.
How we face this,
whether with no solace,
you and I decide intent.
Or with aplomb,
earth, water, fire, tomb.

Conflict is natural.
Yet turmoil answers no call.
Boring if we all agree.
Better than forced inanity.,
Wage war to seek peace.
persecute the poor, needy,
pretend to end greed, poverty

Confused, off balance,
by lies like everyone has a chance,
when few have most
and most have least.
Justice’s scales swing constantly,
up and down, back and forth,
till no one finds true worth.


Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment
