on current events

world on fire
maybe it always has been
maybe it always will be
maybe it’s human nature
maybe it’s conditioning –
social,
media,
governmental,
religious
maybe it’s just the institutions
maybe it should go back to the people
(but how do you prevent corruption?
people in any sort of power have always been
and will always somehow be
corruptible)
listen
i don’t have the answers
i’m doing what i can right now
researching
reading
listening
(asking questions only for answers i can otherwise not find)
educating myself
which, in the usual scheme of things,
makes me know that i am ever ignorant –
we all are –
and if we pretend otherwise,
that’s the stupidest
and maybe most dangerous
of all.
so.
what to do?
educate.
learn.
love.
be kind.
get angry if you must
(unavoidable at times, i know)
but above all,
please,
love, kindness,and
hope.
