I Have Seen

I have seen

written by: Beth Tremaglio



I have seen works of kindness be unkind.

I have seen works of selflessness show selfishness.

I have seen works of humanitarianism be inhumane.

I have seen a pushing of equality create more inequality.

I have seen a fight for more livable wages redistribute more poverty.

I have seen a building of corporate America create less jobs.

I have seen a war against racism birth more racists.

I have seen many articulate politicians say nothing.

I have seen many poets write about love and remain loveless.

I have seen many speak about the evolving of humans and yet a whole age is dumbed down by a simple cell phone.

I have seen many claim to have great minds and yet thoughtless apart from a search bar.

I have seen many experts knowledge-less.

I have seen many say “for the good of us all” create more tyrants.

I have seen greed in the rich and the poor.

I have seen sin and evil prayers come from believers of gods.

I have seen many deny god and cry to him for fear of death.

I have seen judgement replace accountability.

I see a world tossed into the waves of vanity, egotism reaping all that has been sown.

I have seen many fall and yet think they are standing.

I have seen many schools but less education.

I have seen many fear silence and choose chaos.

I have seen many talk of redistributing wealth and do nothing but spread poverty’s hunger.

I have seen every protest and yet we are still here, protesting as if it was a new fight.

I have seen every road repeat itself and yet we call it the road less traveled.

I have seen much and yet nothing.
