I never understood the concept of terror – K. B

I never understood the concept of terror

 

 
I say concept
Coz I’m afraid
Of the feeling.

If you told
A baby
In the belly
That the
World is
Full of mountains,
Eternal snows,
Deep seas
And dense forests,
Would he believe
You ?

Maybe he would
Want to see it
For himself.

He would probably
Rather stay in the belly,

Because he’s afraid
Of the Unknown,
Like all of us.

If you told
A dying man
That beyond
His departure,

There’s a paradise
For the virtous
And a hell
For the damned,

Would he believe you?

Maybe he would rather
Have it to never leave.

Now,

If you tell
The baby
In the belly
That there
Is a social
World
Full of injustice
And inequity,

That he might
Be born rich
Or poor
And without
Assistance,

He will surely
Never come out.

That’s how I feel
When I meet a homeless
Man.

Do I want to grow up
And see more ?

Yes ! Indeed .

But I will save my
Ass first.

And I will never
Give.

Therefore,
A smile is
Charity.

To offer food
Is generosity.

And to shelter
Someone is
Unspeakably
Beautiful

For I have
My own
Habits
And I
Won’t
Change them
For a dime.

That’s how
Selfish
I am,

When I look
At myself
In the mirror.

There,
It’s all said.

« Human,
Too human ».
