Just think of all the progress that we’ve made,
We human beings, through our intelligence,
And yet there’s reason we should be afraid
For what we often lack in common sense:
Were it more common, we should realize
The senselessness of rivalry and hate;
We’d seek for ways to demonstrate we’re wise
And in our homo sapience grow great.
The solitary ego seeking power,
Estranged from fellowship, devoid of love,
Is motivated only to devour,
To crush opponents with an iron glove.
Our only hope as humans to grow wise
Is via love and all that love implies.
