We Are

We see, hear, feel
Speak about it.
Speak many words,
opinions, ideas.
We are good at speaking.
Speaking is simple.

We talk of change.
We want it, but
only if it's
just the way we want it.
We are good at wanting.
Wanting is easy.

We claim belief
We claim faith, but
Hardly show it
When it's not "required."
We are good at making empty claims.
Pretending is common.

We find all faults,
Point them all out.
Blame others,
But deny our own wrongs.
We are good at pointing fingers.
It is the easy way out.

We are corrupt.
It's our nature.
Lying, stealing.
Immorality rules.
We are good at being negligent.
After all, changing takes effort.

We are reluctant, stubborn, willful.

These will bring us to an end.

We are not invincible.

We are human.

That is all we will ever be.

No amount of technology will change that.

Science can try to deny the fact.

Science can try to play God.

But our world is unraveling.

Human, to the end.
