...and so it is. all too soon, rapidly pacing away existence 10 years ago it would not have been fathomable to imagine such a loss What once was constant, is now a strain to find amongst the masses. The good deed, an anomaly. in it's place, a periscope of lust. The screams of injustice that shook the conscience are now a whisper, the conscience can not hear. No longer do I see the eyes of a soul instead I see a glazed look of humanity lost. the hollow eyes walk hypnotized by light, induced by artificial evolution A woman hurt and broken, begs for someone to listen. but the pace is rapid, and the masses cannot hear. A bruised child yearns for someone to see, but the pace is rapid and the hollowed eyes can not see. A man humbled by the loss of livelihood reaches for a hand but the pace is rapid and hypnotically we march cruelty, injustice, and fear rip many to parts... and still we do not realize in our empty existence the earth once vibrant and full of life, is now a mechanical world of temporal desires. no longer do I see the eyes of a soul Instead I see the glazed look... of humanity lost.

    Oh, That is deep.
    This one jumped out at me. I'm not sure what that says about me though???

    Great line, Hatter. This was deep, as everyone seems to agree. Remind me not to read any of your stuff when I'm drunk, will ya?
    Some heavyweight thinking here. Nicely written.
