Is the real idolatry that we do not worship each other?
And truest heresy that we consider that we are not already perfect*
*though some assembly required
What is it inside them that drives some people to escalate,
-To need to conquer to vanquish, and to obliterate in order to exist?
And others to resolve at all cost, beyond the self, beyond selfless
Why should it take such sacrifice to make peace
Almost as much as it does to make war
Not fighting, but vigilant,
Holding the line, holding our hearts
Holding our breath.
We are all as sacred than anything else in existence
but also no less ordinary.
That should be enough, for anyone.
If it's not fighting to see that, is it the wrong war?
