A World Set Ablaze

We are burning.
A world set ablaze,
by "Us and Them."
We no longer recognize, 
friend from foe.

The mounting lies and half-truths 
sicken us,
make loathsome borders about our hearts.

We fan the flames of division,
speak without thought.
Tempt ignorance. 

A fractured whole, 
this ruptured core
an inferno.
This questioning of Oneness, 
this dissolution,
our finest mistake.
