The Human Predicament: Part I

from by Coins As Portraits



There is a substance in you that tempered your brotherly love and I feel such nature can only cause an infectious solitude. Brothers our father made us be, but beg I will not for my life to last. He is always listening: tears and strength become my vows, for now. Yet I will subdue to your mindset of pathological flaws, but I lack the force to reach and stop your hand from taking what’s not rightfully yours. You can't see that this fratricide is no longer the taking of a life; it is as if you murdered the whole mankind, spreading mischief across the land. I’m feeling sympathy for my murderer, for I never felt a wound. I cannot read in your eyes the mark of providence, but given your standing, my last word will not be the casting of a prayer, but merely giving tongue to my thoughts: I have no ink-eating testament. Slowly I begin to understand... Farewell, farewell, farewell brother!
