We, the Infected.

We, the Infected.

A Poem by Darien Don

About how people are spreading hate around more than kindness these days.


All these words

Such hate erupts from mouths

How much further must we pursue hurt?

Other people in pain, yet we walk past 

Consumed with indifference

Where are all those who aren't infected

The hate that engulfs the heart

Do we really live?

Are we just shells of people we once were 

After hate takes us

Can we find that kindness that was once given

Or, will we drown in all this sin.

"How much further must we pursue hurt?"
Such a great line, so true. Very well written, and very insightful. I am in complete aggreance (is that a word?) with EmmaClaire. A beautiful poem indeed!
