Toto - Audio - Blog - 11 - 11 - 17 : Remember Our Humanity
We're all asked to remember on this day, at this hour the sacrifices made by the many for what we have today. If today's travesties, lack of freedom, injustices, poverty, starvation, more wars and deprivation of the many and crimes by the few is what we must remember then better we regain our humanity to dispel the travesties inherited!
A Time to remember our humanity?
Puppet politicos proliferate in politics
As allocated assets augment aristocracy
Plebs persecuted the poor get poorer
Media manipulates the multitudes
While wars wage on through psycho Führers.
Where are the minds of wise theologians
Where is the heart in the cause of the needy
Where’s empathy fled
Where’s purpose fed
To nurture the weak
Those unable to speak
Have we thrown justice on the bonfire of vanities
Just to see it burn all human rights for inanities?
Do they feel we’re stupid
Taking us for dumb
Well it looks like they’re right
Till we rise up and staunch their fun
Much is made emotional
Yet lucid thought
Clears the air and allows to dare
A people crushed to rise and share
Yet are the many hurting hard
Ready to rise and cry “Enough”?
For if they are the revolution’s on
The status quo will soon be gone.
It takes desire, it takes much pain
Yet so very much lies waiting to gain
So many words and voices cry
To a wall of silence where many die.
If humanity we truly are
Then it’s up to us to raise the bar
A bar where truth and justice reign
Compassion and tolerance we can regain
