Human Addiction

By: Cass Andra

We all speak of love and lost
But do we really know the cost?
Not appreciating their presence,
Till they have reached heaven.

We all speak of forgiveness and forgetting.
But are we even doing?
The act of claiming to be moving on,
Are the hatred and misgivings actually long gone?

We all speak of amiableness and acceptance,
But do we walk the talk?
Or do we choose and judge?
Shading everyone to different spectrums of dark.

We all speak of truth and trust,
But we are all dishonest to the last.
When we hear and talk,
Without verifying if it’s a credible or not.

We all speak of friends and foes,
But is there a necessarily need for so?
Why form divides and lines?
When we are all one human kind.

About R.S. Mallari

Through poetry I am trying to break the barriers of ethnicity, cultures and even beliefs for we humans have the same emotions, the same desires and aspirations. We may differ in colors, in language, and food that we eat yet we are still living under the same sun, swimming and sailing on the same seas and sleeping under the same stars.
