Look at what we have become.

What we have truly always been.

The monsters in our nightmares,

our deadliest enemy,

we are the lions in Daniel’s den.

Savages.

We twisted and tore up love.

Our compassion is only given when it serves us best.

Our intelligence became a dangerous tool.

We smile to each other, but keep our tongues and knives sharp.

We’ve become quick to attack, to injure.

Savages.

Is it even possible that there’s hope?

Or has that virtue finally abandoned Pandora’s Box?

Are we so far gone, that we cannot be saved?

The scales of right and wrong are greatly imbalanced.

The heroes we used to value, became the nastiest of villains we uphold.

Savages.

Time goes on, and the world continues to turn.

Our hatred grows ever larger and stronger.

The past cannot be changed…

But the future…

Is up to us.

Savages.
