Where is Our Humanity?

olawaliumPosted for Everyone to comment on, last month2 min read

Most people would tell you they want the good life
So they would sell themselves to the devil as the wife
They don't want to go through the process, they think they won't thrive
So, they employ ways to cheat the process, even engaging in strife
We are all chasing after different things in life
Some feel it's okay to cheat others, even offer the bribe
We all want to do what we think is best for us as long as we are the ones ahead
We don't care whose ox is gored in the process as long as we have our way
Humans can be ruthless sometimes when it comes to goals
We can be self-centered to a large extent too
Without checking the toss of each side of the coin
Life can be so demanding and hard but there is a place for our humanity
We don't have to lose sight of what's important
Just because we are trying to make ends meet
We don't need to take another life in the tussle of life just to get ahead
It's easier said than done, yes, but there is no higher court than the court of conscience
Every man for himself but we should strive to do better...be better
There is no success worth losing our humanity over


Thank you for your time.

My pen doesn't bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.
