Human Nature

Human Nature

A Poem by Invisible Ink
"

against violence

"

Silence

is golden

I understand this

we learn most

when we are

not speaking,

but listening

I hear things

in the dead night

and when

I open my mouth

I scream

words that must be said

against this human nature

that tears itself to shreds

against our violence

turning

our world blood red
