Make as many as mistakes as you want, just don't make the same mistake.


We humans cut down millions of trees per day yet we write on paper without guilt. We humans kill thousands of animals yet we stuff our face with chicken without trouble. We humans pass at least one homeless person per month yet we can walk pass them and STILL are able to call them brothers. Even fortunate and wealthy, some of us still become avarices, convincing themselves that they are the less fortunate, needing every single penny to suffice the norms of society.

Arrogance.

This is arrogance. A plague so strong that it has become natural in our society. Many shall read this yet almost all shalln't act.

Arrogace.

I actually wrote this piece at the park once. I saw a man purchase ice cream with five dollars, letting the vendor keep the change, but when he passed a beggar, he ignored him, pretending that he didn't exist.
