    dots A Peculiar Gift dots

    Was my life just a wish
    I hid between the pages of survival

    And even though the Universal source of all
    Granted me this gift

    This singular precious life
    Did I search instead to be the worthiness of heaven

    Did I judge all my actions
    By the prison bars of hell

    And see in your eyes and the eyes of others
    The handiwork of demons

    Have I written on the chalkboard of my soul
    The dark inks of my submissions

    I see that in our innocence
    We have been duped and confused

    Into leading a less than innocent life

    And the greatest tragedy of this Earth
    Is the ignorance of our denial

    We do not see the collage of injustice
    Their bodies scattered on our path

    And all the bright and shining electronic objects
    Are limply hanging from the sign posts of our children’s future

    Their bodies dried and bloodless
    Skeletal in their silence

    Point the way to our decent
    Into the depths of the untouchable and the soulless

    Where and how have we been brought to this

    To feel so very comfortable
    While the price we count in money

    Is the cost
    Of human life

    Did we eat too much
    Did we want too much

    Did we suckle so much in frenzy
    Upon the teat of propaganda

    Did I believe too readily
    Did we swallow all our pride

    Has conscience become a mouthful
    A swallowed panacea of pharmaceuticals

    When did we agree to be
    So confused

    Did you accept that all this luxury
    Must be paid by the suffering of someone else

    Or did I just close my heart
    Close my mind and close your soul

    And even though the nagging is persistent
    The denial of truth haunts all of you

    Did we bury ourselves in the infatuation
    Of all this passing momentary thrill

    Bought and sold from the instance of our birth
    And it is not our part to carry the guilt or the fault

    But each one of us in time
    Must wake up

    To the complicity that we play
    In the slavery inflicted on this world

    A part of innocence and ignorance
    In the suffering of our brothers and our sisters

    A peculiar gift is the insight burgeons a new light within the soul
    Far more humane it is than burden of its curse

    To live amongst these human chains
    But still see all that we are worth
