Humans do many heartless things,
We abuse and violate
We go to war and bomb,
But of all the harmful things that humans can do.
The darkest thing, with the deepest roots that we do
Happens without consciousness,
And without control.
It is at the beginning of so many acts of destruction.
Even where bodies and buildings still stand.
We torture through other-izing. Dehumanizing, as a means to justify evil.
