Human Warmth is Sorry

Hope, urgent, pithy.
Look away, let silence speak!
Human warmth is sorry.

Egos too bloated to carry,
Chests out, sympathetic.
Hope, urgent, pithy.

The apathy of fury.
Despair and distress peak.
Human warmth is sorry.

Praise the story,
Repentent, meek.
Hope, urgent, pithy.

Resist through poetry;
Heartfelt like music.
Human warmth is sorry.

Opinions we bury:
Greed makes us weak.
Hope, urgent, pithy.
Human warmth is sorry.

“It is greed to do all the talking but not to want to listen at all.”
Democritus
