The Hijabi don’t scare me,
the Buddhist or Hindu don’t either,
they intrigue me,
if you have no faith, that doesn’t scare me,
different opinions are OK, even healthy,
we can disagree, and that’s alright too,
unless you have a gun,
I’m not scared.
But what does scare me are corporations,
firing people for no reason,
so they can hire someone else,
at half the cost.
Governments can scare me, if they don’t care,
but are obsessed with numbers,
meanwhile the poor wait in line.
A lack of compassion,
is what really scares me,
because we become less human,
and we lose a sense of our selves,
searching for who we are,
in a hand held device.
That’s what really scares me.
