Change Indifference

You could change the world

if you could change one thing;

something more rooted than poverty,

more contagious than disease.

Its silence stands out in a crowd,

it is on the face of every passerby

who looks in the eye of a victim and adverts their eyes.

 

It is our indifference that numbs us,

desensitizes us, 

disconnects us from our brothers.

It allows us to forget our humanity,

our shared conscious,

our shared vaulues and aspirations.

 

It is our indifference lets us kill each other, 

watch each other die.

So if i could change one thing

I would change the apathetic mind 

with a sympathetic heart.
