When will tolerance prevail? Hearts fill with loving acceptance? We, humans, learn that we are all human, not good or bad, just different from each other. My heart longs for human rights for all.
Wrapped up in smoke,
Robbed of its smiles,
My city seems shrunk,
Sucked off its warmth,
It lies deserted tonight…
Walls of trust have been shattered,
My city weeps,
As its men continue to gruesomely depict their overflowing sexual appetite,

And the worst thing is what is left for a innocent person to deal with and all the people that person will have relationships with through life.

Another powerful comment. The generosity of your heart shines through. Thank you for this.
Yes, neelkanth, it is. I had to reblog. There are some things too important to not share. Have a good day, friend.
