A Passion in Extinction

By , Bradford, KY
Hands and knees quiver
Whole body cringing
Eyes become swollen with tears
On their human rights infringing

As hunger eats away at their stomach
Fate eats away at their spirits
We are unaware of the depth of their pain
Their despiration-we no longer hear it

Their world is collapsing
With every AIDS victim that falls
Uneducated and without a cure
Their inescapable destiny calls

We are so comfortable
And they are so dependent
They are dying because they cannot support themselves
They are dying because we are unwilling to be transcendent

We have lost our passion
In helping one another
We are too occupied with self-pleasing
We forget the needs of our brothers
