False

This life, it gives and takes,

Indiscriminately, 

And often we as people follow suit.


We fight and claw,

For what we want, 

And pray the heavens in our favour, 

Cursing that they may not favour others. 


We are sick, in our consumption, 

And our resolute defiance,

Of odds and ends,

But are so in natural selection. 


No matter our intentions, 

Our objective is a selfish one,

For glory, wealth, or recognition, 

There is no purity of any actions. 


“But we have a pure heart”, or,

“that wasn’t out intent”. 

We tell ourselves these lies, and feed our righteousness. 

But if these were so true, 

And we were pure and generous,

Why then do we give and take,

Just so indiscriminately
