thick and Full of

Politics, Religiosity, Prejudices, Intolerance

FEARS

HATE

Exposed

Human Condition 2013

The Prisoners

Senseless Violence

Senseless Violence (Photo credit: Thomas Hawk)

The Prisoners

Looking warily out

gated windows,

the

multiple locks

are merely symptomatic

lined down

thick wooden

doored domiciles

lining block after block

in the cities

of the

damned

eyed the moving

shadows

ever threatening

out of exposed corners

without fail

fingers point

never realizing

own responsibility

towards  long

dormant

a languid awareness

now where

only

accusations exist,

long a slumbering

people

ever completely unaware

of  already having

been imprisoned

by our own societal choices

staring down at our own shackles:

apathies

addictions

preoccupations

senseless violence

murder

rape

hate

prejudices

drugs

alcohol

ignorance

intolerance

religiosity

Shutting Doors

[ The Door ]............EXPLORED 5/21....#117....

[ The Door ]…………EXPLORED 5/21….#117…. #4 for the week…thanks…again!! (Photo credit: ~Willa~)

Shutting Doors

Empty Campaigns, Hellbent Enthusiasm for Yet Another Dark Age

The Persecution of People

Oh, The Many Irrational Fears Coming to Light

Thank You Not

I’ll Not Take Part In, or Be Involved in the Backwards Progression

Mindless Masses

Hungry, Eating Up Angry Diatribe-Appetite from Dark Places

All Things Logical,

Not Even Part of Your Landscape of Possibilities, A Certainty of Shunning Away of The Positive

Broken Logic,

Ill Fitting Shoes, Not Fitting My Paradigm

Dark History,

Xenophobic Populace, Not Open to Embracing Change or Difference

 

Breath In, Breath Out……..

 

Break The Chain,

Dare to Be Different,

Dare To Think Differently,

Dare To Think Outside the Box,

Dare to Be open To New Things,

Dare To Embrace Difference,

Dare to Not be Part of the Growing Hate Machine and Mob Mentality…………………..
