THINK ABOUT IT

How far have we come…?
We have cried rivers of tears
Written millions of words over the years
Embraced strangers until they became friends
How far have we come…

Do we now sleep at night
Content until dawning’s light
Or do we toss and turn
Tussling with demons until daylight
How far have we come…?

When you say you care
Do you really…?
Or are you just glad
That your shoes never went there
How far have we come…?

Are we just a cult bound by blood…?
Blood that was shed in our stead
Is it guilt that bands us together…
Or true empathy…
How far have we come…?

I know you and you know me
But only on the surface
For my own reflection
in you… I see
How far have we come…?
