A Prayer To Afflict The Comfortable

it's so much easier

to avert our eyes

from all the suffering

and injustices

that permeate our lives

to be in the midst of

sickness and pain

and always keep our

eyes fixed ahead

can only be explained

away by killing

your conscience

because we all know

that what we can't see

is of no consequence



there is some truth to the doctrine

that ignorance is no excuse

by knowing nothing you are

a silent partner in their abuse



so just close your eyes,

so you don't have to see

suffering out of sight,

is more action out of mind



knowing what i know

about man's inhumanity to man

i could only hate myself

if i left these words unsaid

don't be paralyzed by

you're partnership in these crimes

we have the chance to redeem

ourselves for those who've died



to ignore all the signs

that man is so unkind

and partake in this culture of death

makes all who don't acknowledge

just as guilty



there's still so much to fight for

even though this world

seems rotten to it's core

i know that life can spring anew

from it's remains

it's worth all we can do

to see it through

to better days
