The world

Loves to turn

A blind eye

To truth

They shutter

Light away

And paint the shutters closed

Holding strong

To lies

A collective

Of turned backs

The world

Loves its own

Willful blindness

A Greek chorus

Of mindless approval

Until the pain hits

Until it is personal

Until reality

Can no longer

Be shunned

And then

The world seeks

To lay blame

On anyone


Except self

While I wait

For eyes to open

For truth

To bring vision
