Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgement that something else is more important than fear. ~Ambrose Redmoon


We hear the “breaking news”
Of a hazy debated feud

Angered voices share their thoughts
Razing the damned to be caught

Forming shallow opinions without thinking
Of the harm that’s inflicting

Using the omniscient free voice
Should we always use our choice?

What is quickly shared
Causes consequences unimpaired

Media does its piece
Does not stop the fire unleashed

Thunderous scorn is quick
Striking those whom we pick

To suffer the harsh displeasure
Of our unanalyzed petty measure

Bringing society to sorrow
When lots are cast for tomorrow
