The Unbrave

May 2, 2013

Imagine… if you will or can…

That you are not alone on this dusty rock…

Your life has no other meaning, but life itself…

Why haven’t we tackled greed, famine, and war?

They are all simple to fix.

 

Look… under rocks and stones…

Flick through all the pages of books…

Hear the lyrics of every song…

Why haven’t we tackled greed, famine, and war?

They are all simple to fix.

 

Turn… left, right, up, down…

You cannot hide from the mirror…

It reflects every last wrinkle of who you are…

Why haven’t we tackled greed, famine, and war?

They are all simple to fix.

 

Look… look deeply, look into your eyes…

See the hollowness…

The shadows…

The fear…

Then feel the calm…

The love…

And hear… the emotion…

The scream…

Echo…

Echo…

Echo…

 

I can’t.

I am the unbrave.
