Mystic Sight Denied (XXIV)

Mystic Sight Denied

Succumbing to the mediocrity of conformity,
meaning in life seems to fade into obscurity.
For in the desire to mesh beliefs
into one, to provide common relief,
we erase the beauty held in individuality.

We strive for commonality to promote peace.
A glorious goal of heartfelt release,
thinking oneness will create the urge
to unite in the banishment of the killing surge
and the drums of Shangri-la bang, they never cease.

But in the darkness of night, Valhalla shines its light.
The warriors of old return to set things right.
For humanity was never meant to live as one;
by ignoring evil, we deny half of everyone.
So return, join in the fight, and renew mystic sight.

    Oh, very deep darling, you are brilliant! I’ve always thought that wanting to force everyone into being the same to have peace was most definitely the wrong approach. We simply need to accept that we are all individual, and carry on. Our differences are what make us strong and grow and evolve.

      Sadly, that way will never lead to peace. Worse, though, is when people want to continue capitulating in order to achieve peace. That only leads to self-inflicted slavery.

      Part of me (the pessimistic realist) feels that it is a fools wish anyway. Human nature is to fight. Take that away, you take away a lot of the most powerfully felt emotions. Then humans just become robots. 😦
