"Dominance" #Poetry #Brutality #Cruelty #Islam #DianaMarySharpton

It would be both foolish and cumbersome to continue our everyday existences in bliss without first denying to ourselves, for the sake of excusing our own repugnance, the inherent cruelty from which modern civilization was conceived...And there can be no other path by which a fiercely competitive, yet social species, as humanity, can afford its members the level of safety, prosperity and stability—such that we enjoy now— without its initial pangs of cannibalism, brutality, dominance and cruelty to forge the foundations, very much like the lava which formed the ground upon which we now stand. Lava still erupts from the core. Brutality, Dominance, and Cruelty similarly erupt from ours; and they are no less prevalent now than in early human history.

Angry Eyes (1)
Eyes uncover crooks in a bare soul
Secrets revealed inhabit a heart and remain untold
He seized these glints and jerks them out
A violence, regardless; its dominance he’s about!

It’s not choice! It’s a discovery or awakening to pain
It’s a state in layers, like subsisting thru mediocrity unchanged
It’s a peripheral splendor, a deceit over truth; yet, naked beneath
It’s muted and resounding, an unspoken plea as homeless walk in plain bare feet

I drove past and looked into pools of distance, I could never swim
Journeys, side by side and ones ruled solely by him
Eyes scream in silence however left in vain
Something's impossible to understand, deny or try to change

And it’s in the pain caused; So, awaken to it now!
I drew a line in that sand and won’t back down
Fighting to a death is the proclivity expelled
And I’m free at last from that iron grip, you held!

Again, bullying is a brutality and we see this behavior not just in the workplace but in the Islamic societies again women and anyone that opposes their way of life... What is the difference I ask you? The answer is NONE. They are both socially unacceptable and criminal. Dont let them win!
