January 16, 2013


we live in an age where violence is glorified

relentlessly covered in news

lovingly caressed in media

and wonder that so many die


we live in a time when sensibility is stunned

remorselessly pushed to the side

heedlessly defined as hysteria

and wonder that so many cry


we reap the harvest of our complacent desires

hearts bleeding without even knowing

hideously calloused and bruised

and wonder our eternal why


We Live in an Age
