What We’ve Forgotten

We have forgotten. What is real. The feelings that you aspire. The person you want to become. We have forgotten.

 We have forgotten
what matters.
The ties that bind.
The relationships
that have meaning.
 
We have forgotten.
What is real.
The feelings that you
aspire.
The person
you want to become.
We have forgotten.
 
That life is more
than pleasure and pain
more than love or heartbreak.
It’s about family.
Respect.
Honor.
Dignity.
Courage.
To eliminate
discord.
To work together
in harmony.
Hope
and renewal.
We have forgotten.
 
The best part of being human.
We have traded
our glorious souls
for ashes and want
for chaos and destruction.
We’d rather rip apart
what is holy and beautiful
then put it back together again.
 
We have forgotten.
 
That we were meant for greater things
than just the here and now.
We have forgotten
our God, our resurrection.
We have forgotten.
Everything
about
ourselves.
