A Special Kind of Numb

To end a life not your own,

Takes a special kind of numb pain.

And how many lives have been taken?

And what actions are taken for change?

The condemnation of thousands

Into little gray boxes.

Shaving hair never ends growth.

If we wanted change,

We must walk through the pain

Of pulling out hundreds or thousands of roots,

Big, and small,

Infected and and inflamed.


until we face the necessity

Of immediate change.

I like people whose default setting toward others is compassion, an open mind, and honesty
