Evolution: Ask, "Why?"


Let's put these weapons down. 

Who was it that told us to come here 
to this desert and kill one another?

And for what reason?
In support of what agenda?

Mine? 
Yours?

Do I threaten you?
Do you threaten me?

Were you not also born of a mother 
who bled for your life?

Same as myself.

Have we not each in our own way 
dreamt of happiness; peace?

Are we afterall, any different at all?

I put down this weapon, now.
I invite you to do so, as well.

We'll talk, 
I'll ask you about your family, 
You'll ask me if I like soccer, and I'll pretend I do.

You will be my brother, 
and we will charge those tyrants 
that sent us here to murder one another 
for a banksters profit,
come take up these arms themselves 
and fight their own war.

I offer you peace; 
I offer you love; 
I offer you friendship. 

I honor that within myself that is you,
and I honor that within you that is myself

We are one in the same.
Let's work together,
and reclaim our humanity 
from the throes of greed and desperation.
