Humans Are Selfish



We create things that destroy us.
We destroy things that create us.

Humans are inherently selfish.
We build a home for our families by destroying the homes of others.
We take things that do not belong to us.
We benefit by exploiting, we gain through the loss of others.
We steal and we kill, we strip and we burn.

Humans create things we can't destroy.
We are blinded by greed and our lust for power.
We reward a government of killers by the dominance we have bestowed upon them.
We knowingly harm our Home, we kill all our neighbors.
We fill the world with plastics, chemicals, poisoned vapors.

Humans condone the mass destruction of nature.
We allow coral reefs to flicker out beneath the ocean tides.
We allow rain forests to desiccate into arid dust bowls.
We force animals out of their habitats, we tear trees from their roots.

But isn't all humans created equal?
Do we not have the same share to this earth?
Why are we allowing other humans to destroy our Home and decimate everything that we love?

I feel helpless as a human being.
How do I sleep knowing that Mother Earth is burning?
How do I sleep knowing that animals are starving?
How do I sleep when everything I love is gradually vanishing?
How could I sleep?

I feel helpless as a human being.
We kill one another, we hate each other.
We divide ourselves and compete to be superior.
We are obsessed with the pursuit of profit at the expense of the earth.
We build ourselves just to let others fall.

We create things that destroy us.
We destroy things that create us.
Humans are inherently selfish.
Humans create things we can't destroy.
Humans condone the mass destruction of nature.

Please forgive us.
