Some things brings you to a final understanding.

Hey, my friend, I understand why we close our eyes

Our ears and our mouths

We are being fed so much bullshit

We should wear bibs to protect ourselves

But there are so many doctrines

From so many parts of the world

That bib would be like toilet paper

Because the bullshit would seep through

To our hearts and we freefall into the abyss of ethnocentrism

And flutter around like a hummingbird

Who mistook plastic flowers for real ones?

Isn't that the truth -- the world just can't agree on anything. Nice work.

If only we can dump the ideologies and just be human, it may be easier to agree. When we break it down, we all want the same things like peace of mind. Thank you for reading.
