Entangled Humanity

We wish for the depraved

To become subjected

To the pain and suffering

Of their own depravity

The wild-eyed hatred

Disconnected from self

Deeply rooted and tethered

In the bewildering shame

The pain that was “ours”

Is transferred to “theirs”

The anger we plant

Darkens our existence

The path is cyclical

The suffering real

What is the lesson

In a distorted reality?

Searching for meaning

But without justice

Pleading for a reason

Without prayers for redemption

Eternal loneliness

Is all that exists

When choosing to repeat

The shattering of spirits

Entangled humanity

In perceived separation

Can only find healing

Upon total absolution
