The Human Paradox

While our own pride we value so;
For that of the others we little care;

While our own feelings we nurture so,
To those of the others we cause despair;

While we grant ourselves the need to be touched,
To others we forget to reach out;

While always trying to win their trust,
The others we can only doubt;

While ourselves in pursuit of freedom,
The others we hesitate not to confine;

While we profess religion,
We consider not the others a part of the divine;

While we assert justice and fair play,
Our deeds do us belie;

While we seek self preservation,
We little know we destroy ourselves with a lie!
