Caught in first world issues
We so rarely glimpse outside.
Blind to the harsh world.
There are so many instances when the world has been outraged about some calamity and then forgotten about it the very next week. We prefer to forget – it is easier than remembering just how terrible the world is, and how terrible we ‘humans’ can be. But we must keep our eyes open so we know how lucky we are and remember to show kindness to everyone. You never know what they’ve been through.
Thanks again to Ronovan for the weekly haiku prompt.
