Artificial Lives

Sometimes we just need to see a hero cry

before they pick themselves up

and go on to save the day…

but we prefer to seek hidden truths in cliche

confusing revenge with justice

facades with truth

and righteousness with morality

until our eyes are so damaged

that we can’t see the rawness that makes the

art of being human

worth celebrating.
