This poem is about what the world and people really are


Thoughts are like the roots of a tree,

To connect with something greater.

The emotions aren't branches, they skillfully-

Are seeds, in which grows to become loyal or be a traitor.

Understanding someone is an understatement,

We know human beings because we are aliens

Studying as if we really cared, studying meant

Understanding something we don't know, ourselves failing

Explanations of fact and fiction is a theory

Love and Hate are the same when we judge.

You are different and again alike, Irony

Laws and wars kept us apart , we held a grudge

But we killed, we committed suicide.

When revenge bleeds, I only see red tears Oh how we cried
