Suffer and Belong

Are we gonna survive?
7 billion asking over and over
Some many times in a day, an hour
A minute
A gray hair for each
And it doesn’t matter really
You can vaccinate
Or get more educated
Run for office
And believe with all your heart
That will end the suffering
But it won’t
All the mothers in the world
Can’t stop men from dying
We are creatures of creation
And nurturing
We hate to see destruction
And unrest
And what if you did anyway?
And your love for health
Turned us all into forever high
Infinite sunshine laughter dogs
With no dips into dark death to cool off
What is your end-game?
Babies are not created equally
Disease is our partner
Suffering is justice
And your striving and ranting
Sounds like maybe you just aren’t ready to belong
