Urgent BY MwsR

An urgent cry for help

So many signs, so much time passing

“If only” things clutter the mind.

Where is it we lose our edge?

Hopeless people are everywhere

People without hope are starting to rise

Some show it externally

Some try still, so very much, to hide it.

Acts that go against “their nature”,

Lies that start piling up

Crashes from exhaustion

Seems for some the world can be too much.

A comment given after a statement

One that so innocently gets ignored

There can be that “once in for instance”

Like the slamming of their bedroom door

Actions that warrant no real reason

Spontaneous emotion followed by insults

Sometimes the oddest of things are guarded

And sometimes the care of self, not so much.

Will tarrying delay the consequences for deeds that penetrate the soul?

Often in this life we try to be so bold.

Caring not about the outpour of another

One with whom we share this world

Faultless is no one

Responsible is everyone.

The shame lies in the way we acknowledge

The way we pacify others,

In our ignorance of other’s lives

Forgetting the whole realm of everything

Excusing the very ones who are to blame.
