We are fucked.
When my newsfeed is full of dead and dying babies
When all you have to do is scroll down to escape an image
of torture, of suffering
when a polar bear clinging to ice looks cute
when another bomb is just another bomb
when the bloodied face of a mother looking for her child
in a pile of rubble
when our 'democracies' use voicemail and bullet proof cars to 'reach the people'
when we don't stop to listen to the birds or the frogs or the elephants who are all screaming at us to STOP what we are doing
then i start to lose hope
i smile at everyone i meet
i try to give humanity a chance to prove herself
but holy fuck it's getting hard
