I cannot tell you.

I cannot tell you
why people are angry
or why violence
is released
from oneself
and onto another.

I cannot
tell you why
I can give reason
and excuses
and try to explain it
but I cannot tell you why.

I cannot tell you why
humans harm each other
I cannot point to a human
and tell you if they’re evil
or if they’re good
because reality
isn’t concrete
we can’t pour the cement
and wait for the handprints
to determine
which ones
belong to the good ones
and the bad ones
because people are neither
because to determine
good and bad
we’d have to pick
one mind out of billions
and give that mind power to choose
in which we would have solved nothing.

Thanks for reading.
