Viewing the state of humanity

there seems to be some stages

as we entertain insanity

quite often it enrages

us to think we are separate from the source of our existence

and we find ourselves in Shame

feelings of misery rise up with persistance

and we have only ourselves to blame

we feel Guilt for being who we are

and feel like we’re never enough

with our very souls we constantly spar

and the battle is very rough

hope becomes a distant dream

as we play out our lives as tragedy

and due to our lowly sense of self esteem

all we embrace is Apathy

mired in our suffering

we live our lives in Grief

the burden of existence is smothering

and there seems to be little relief

that life will ever improve

we find ourselves in Fear
