Human Differences Denied


Shameful and often brutal is the manner mutual and respective lives are often treated by others of the same human ilk for no more than the obscure and often irrelevant nuances individual lives feel compelled by indescribable forces, to adorn themselves, to reflect a slice of independence within the pool of humanity to which they unquestioningly become part; a chance to differentiate, to cultivate a feeling of uniqueness with a willingness to be singled out at the cost of being subject of ridicule and potential disenfranchisement from the collective that spurns such choices principally out of fear approval of such willing engagement may contribute to destruction of the invisible tribal structure construct to which they have for the most part unwittingly, unquestioningly, become part but, simply due to a failure to recognize within themselves the same ambition desire to differentiate, to cultivate a feeling of uniqueness purely out of fear of being singled out and shamefully treated by others of the same human ilk.

Defiance


the price is  loneliness to be of individual mind
to lack being want of any of the same kind
left alone to suffer ridicule for suggestion to find
greater worth in Self, then to follow the blind

body  defeating the universal clay-mould
defying to suffer the history of that being told
living truth to sought wisdom before being old
knowing strength from conflict with that being sold

eon’s history derives the same, repeated end
where individuals die for unknown others, asking to defend
the honor of the group collective that it survive to contend
perpetuating the myth: spilled blood, to humanity’s survival, it does lend.
