The Worst Acts

Humans do many heartless things,

We deride,

We judge

We rob

We tease

We isolate.

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.

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