Holes in the box.

Thoughts swim within the air
polluted by the germs of fellow words
infecting those thoughts with their sickness
polluting views and simple wants
turning simple wants into weapons
loaded of hate and disgust
and slowly destroying the healthy bacteria
living within ideals
because perspective
is covered in vocal cord eating bacteria
getting in and exposing wounds
as they slice through the larynx
leaving holes in the box
and the words come out
half spoken
and muffled
because speaking differently
turns the air hostile
rather if the bacteria slowed
and took a moment
its growth could spread
in a healthy environment
in which words are spoken and shared
and respect becomes
the main focus.

Thanks for reading.
