The Self-fulfilling Prophecy

April 30, 2011

When the world screams hate you're loathful;
When the world shrieks love you care.
For when the people as one do expel and shun,
No option is left you there.

When a band think themselves greater
Than the other guys next door,
There is not a chance in hell to then stop the swell
Of young fools gone off to war.

When the world sees witches, you're cursed;
When it feels plague, you sicken.
Of such a bias mandate, vain to validate,
Infection does just quicken.

When called ugly, the mirror will break;
When called clumsy, balance fails.
If told there is not a need to try and succeed
Resolve is riddled with nails.

The epic of man is ageless,
Continuing evermore.
All the mistakes of the past are holding on fast
Just as novel as before.

The cycle is perpetual,
As old as Adam himself.
So, would it be all that strange to not expect change
From someone such as myself?
