‘When will I believe in vigilantism?’

When will I believe in vigilantism?
When I know no truth?
Or when the truth is finally known?
When is vigilance no longer enough?
Will I accept in my darkest hour?
Or will I forsake in my brightest moment?
Will water wash away my sins?
Or will blood wash away theirs?
How long can we sit idly by?
And watch the down of man…?
How long can we regret to inform?
Until one day, it is our own children that suffer.
Where is that power…
that power of love I have heard so much about?
Where is it when masses die for the search of morsels…
morsels of food?
This world hurts me, every day.
And some, if not most, would say I am a good man.
But pain against women! And children!
God! I cannot understand!
I am truly trying to be righteous…
But it is the virtue of money!, and not the virtue of benevolence!,
that is driving the world mad!
Humanity is not free, humanity is greed.
And we are dying.
So I ask, I beg, I evoke you to claim your place in this world,
and stand.
Just fucking stand.

‘I have felt the depths of your resolve’

I have felt the depths of your resolve. How shallow they are in my hands. How feeble your attempts to adjoin nonsense. Those non-whimsical attempts of control your media besmears, how they dispel the rumours of your soul and crown them fact. For if I was never a good man, a decent person, or a kind soul, then where do you rank? You took lives. You shattered families. And all the while you thought you were in the right. You were only confused of the meaning of wrong. And a brother in arms, is a brother in all. But you are no brother of mine. Yet I extend my hand in grief of the souls you freed of their vessels, I extend my hand in the pity I sense of you.

About Me
In self-reflection; I can honestly say all that is good in my life has been a direct result of my artistic expression. Be it through writing poetry, prose, or philosophy, through painting or photography, or through filmmaking, art saved my life and it can save yours.
