In the face of adversity your silence is a sound
In the heat of battle your non-action is profound
Your decision to ignore
The suffering of those around you
In an effort to remain comfortable
Makes you less in my eyes
It makes you small
As unremarkable as a fly
And twice as irritating.
I firmly believe life isn’t hard because it’s meant to be that way.
Life is hard because people make it that way.
People broken and reformed in the image of an unfeeling environment
Encouraged to produce flowers of cruelty and scents of corruption
But still their beauty draws in the novice and master alike.
