Not them

if I fail to see the humanity of another person, then I am the problem. not them

if I choose to step over the suffering of another person, then I am the thug. not them

if I take everything from my life without thinking of those that lost theirs, then I am the looter. not them.

if I watch intently as another person dies over and over again, then I am the criminal. not them.

if i feed myself with cruelty, mocking the cries of a mother, then i am the savage. not them.

if i sit silently, in fear of speaking the truth, then i am the liar.  not them.
