The Pain, Agony and Deceit of Mankind


My eyes fill with tears, and my soul feels pain, from what you
call....COMPASSION AND PLEASURE.


My mind a masquerade of confusion, and my heart aches, from what you
call...SURVIVAL AND LOVE.


My life a tangled web of deceit, and my emotions a pawn, from what
you call....CARE AND LIFE.


My cripple and mangled body slowly, healing, and my fate in jeopardy
as the pendulum sings, slowly, from what you call....NOT KNOWING MY
PLACE AND JUSTICE.


My faith shields the noxious attempts, and my being no longer pretends to be
a slave, to what you call....CONCERN AND GIVING.


My peace of mind rebukes the violation of my rights, and my hope to
escape the abuse and battering, denied, from what you call....PARANOIA
AND GAMES.


My logic refuses to accept the reasoning, and my mind rejects the action of
terrorism in the name, of what you call....FREEDOM AND
EQUALITY.


Therefore, in the name of humanity and liberty, this ode to the Pain,
Agony, and Deceit, of what you call.....MANKIND.
