I think people forget: The past is there for us to learn from, not to make war over.


I’ve had quite enough of
Your moral absolutes
Always yin, yang, white, black
As if your coat of paint
Was ever consistent
I wish you’d watch your words
Eat themselves and then you
Acid enough to wilt gold

Each shadow on my face
Is a sin in your eyes
I swear they’re puckered shut
Tight-lipped as your heartstrings
I’ve seen enough to know
That coffins do not judge
That death just distracts you
From all that matters most

I hope you realize you
Can’t un-become yourself
You’re as chained as any
Try your own jeers for size
There’s a line between a
Social comment and a
Self-ignorant sneeze, so
Cover your mouth to speak

Me, I’m color-blind to
Justice and all that crap
There’s more to the world than
Being history’s pet
You should make history
Instead of letting it
Make you; I rest my case
So just get on with it

We must beware that we do not polarize our views, for there is no true moral white to be had.
