Secluded Fort

Self-absorbed in selfishness,
society ignores all the cries
of other civilisations.

Within our forts, secluded,
and the starving creatures
humans and animals left to die.

No care given to the pain inflicted
as long as we do not feel it ourselves.

We could throw our suits in the mud
leave our belongings behind
and live with love and peace,
but instead, find ourselves
wearing the skin
of those that we leave to die.

      1. I absolutely agree. The world would be a better place if people actually cared and it’s sad that many don’t. This was a beautiful read, I’m glad someone else is writing about this too!
